Silversun Pickups - Substitution

slsI'm submitting a song for SLS22 consideration. I'm submitting "Substitution" by Silversun Pickups.

Dangerbird Records gets it. Not only do they make their bands' music videos available on YouTube in HD, but they actually allow folks like me to embed it onto our sites.

Dangerbird Records, an independent record company located in Silverlake, CA, actually wants people to see music videos, which are essentially ads for the album and live shows. Oh, and the tee shirts and hoodies and DVDs and everything that comes with band worship.

By doing so, Dangerbird Records encourages the sharing of their bands' videos, controls the quality of the video being shared, because we're all sharing their HD version, and keeps fans happy, because they're not shut out of sharing the love. I'll never understand why many major labels disable embedding.

It's also a good song and video. Bonus!

Silversun Pickups are a great band. They are better at being The Smashing Pumpkins than The Smashing Pumpkins.

I am totally getting into SSPU. I just love the Substitution video. The looks the girls give each other are totally priceless. They look like they want to get into one giant cat fight.
