Pikul is the debut EP from the Silversun Pickups, released on Dangerbird Records in 2005. The album includes 17 untitled tracks after "...All the Go Inbetweens", all of which are about 44 seconds long each, concealing a hidden track at the end ("Sci-Fi Lullaby"). The album name comes from the nickname of a friend of the band who died, and to whom the album is dedicated. The name is commonly pronounced "Pickle", but the correct pronunciation is "pie-kull".[5] The EP has two music videos: "Kissing Families" and "Comeback Kid". In 2009 it was released on vinyl. "All The Go In Betweens" recorded at "The Ship" in 2002. "The Fuzz" recorded at "The Ship" in 2003. "Comeback Kid", "Creation Lake" produced at Sunset Sound in 2005. "Kissing Families", "Booksmart Devil" produced at Clearlake Studio in 2004. Album mastered at Capitol Mastering.[6]
