Silversun Pickups: Dots And Dashes (Enough Already)

It took a while for me to get used to Silversun Pickups’ album “Neck of the Woods”, mostly because it sounded a little different from what I was used to hearing from them.  However, after a full listen to the album, I found myself completely impressed and enamoured, particularly with this song, Dots & Dashes.  Best song of the album, hands down.  (Bloody Mary (Nerve Endings) comes in at a close second.)  I’m wondering why, though.  Maybe it’s the lyrics and the tempo, which is unlike most of their songs.

Either way, even if I wasn’t super keen on Dots & Dashes, the whole album is pretty spiffy.  Go pick it up.

Scene?  Two words.  Fight Club.  I don’t know why, but I pictured the whole movie as I listened to the song.  Not sure what the song’s meant to represent, or what the rationale behind the lyrics “I’ve already learned a bit of sin; enough, let me in.”  But imagine a super grimy location and you in a hooded sweater.  Underground fight club.  Camera circles you, slowly at first, and then the tempo picks up.  Well into the song, when accenting on the drum begins, enter opponent.  /end scene
