New releases: Silversun Pickups, Death Cab for Cutie and more

Silversun Pickups - Swoon - The sophomore LP from the LA indie rock act, following up their successful 2006 debut, Carnavas.

Death Cab for Cutie - The Open Door (EP) - This five-song EP consists of tracks that the band recorded for their 2008 LP, Narrow Stairs, but didn't make the cut.

Metric - Fantasies - The fourth album by the Canadian band features the single "Help, I'm Alive" and is available in various formats, including vinyl and deluxe hardcover.

Siouxsie and the Banshees - Remastered and expanded editions of A Kiss in the Dreamhouse, Nocturne, Hyaena and Tinderbox - After a long wait, the iconic British punk/alternative band has released the next batch of remasters in a project that began in 2005 to reissue their entire catalog. This batch features three of their strongest studio albums in addition to their classic live album, Nocturne.

Chicago artists:

Paper Arrows - Things We Would Rather Lose - The local indie pop/rock band's second full-length, following last year's Look Alive. They'll play Schubas on May 17.

Haymarket Riot - Endless Bummer - New album from the local post-punk band, featuring nine tracks and available through their site. Catch them live at the Hideout on May 16.
