Debut album from Silversun Pickups repressed! 2006's Carnavas is the Los-Angeles-based band's first proper full length and introduced the world to their unique brand of uber-catchy, hazy/grungy indie rock. The album follows up the 2005 EP Pikul and contains some of their most loved material including the hit "Lazy Eye" (which gamers might recognize from Rock Band 2/Guitar Hero World Tour/Forza Horizon), "Well Thought Out Twinkles" (as featured on Tony Hawk's Proving Ground), "Little Lover's So Polite" (from Jennifer's Body) and "Rusted Wheel". A bit of trivia for Silversun Pickups fans - the title is actually a homage to lead guitarist/vocalist Brian Aubert's Greek heritage. 2015 double vinyl repress, house in gatefold sleeve with digital download included.
