The brand new Silversun Pickups album, Swoon, grabbed the top spot at Twist & Shout for the week ending April 19. Since the store was pretty busy on Record Store Day (April 18), it's not surprising that special releases for that day by Iron & Wine, My Morning Jacket and Tift Merritt also made the top ten. See the full breakdown after the jump.
