Silversun Pickups, Bear Hands

When: Fri., June 24, 8 p.m. 2016

Silversun Pickups long coveted the scale and the drama of Smashing Pumpkins’ glory days, but they often fell way short. This year’s Better Nature isn’t exactly the Pumpkins’ Adore, but the Los Angeles quartet does dial back the Big Muff-through-Marshall volume worship for an emphasis on texture and nuance. Still, it’s slick modern alt-rock that largely comes off like a less imaginative version of its dominant influences. And yes, Brian Aubert sounds like Billy Corgan. —Patrick Wall
