Sleeper Agent – “Waves””

Sleeper Agent - Waves

Sleeper Agent are back and new jam “Waves” takes things down a few notches from the splendid spazz ripping of their debut. I’m not mad at it though. Each listen pushes this one further into my brain and it just feels like growing a bit older with a good friend. Comfortable and new and awesome.

The 25 Best MUSIC VIDEOS of 2011

Every once in a while I meet someone who casually mentions that music videos are dead and I’m always shocked. Music videos have never been more alive and vibrant than they are now in the age of video democracy online. This post is a celebration of the creative spirit that fights every day to set great songs to even better visuals. You guys are my heroes.

Watch the videos in a countdown stye playlist below or continue on to catch them embedded 1-by-1 with my woefully minimal commentary.

[LP] Sleeper Agent – CELABRASION (w/ “Get Burned”)

i’m not cold, i’m just a shakin’  and a little of your love keeps me a baking

♫ Sleeper Agent – Get Burned Sleeper Agent’s “Get It Daddy” is one of the most refreshing raucous singles of the year, rocking the Kentucky band to the forefront of guitar driven fun times. The video (below) is also one of the years best. The rest of the band’s debut LP Celabrasion continues the rocking goodness that one would expect, hurtling through 12 tracks of big hooks and sing along vocals that rarely beak the 3 minute mark. In these times of lo-fi chillwave mellow jams the raw energy of Sleeper Agent is much welcomed. “Get Burned” (above) and “Be My Monster” are my latest favorites. The album doesn’t redefine anything but it really doesn’t need too when its working the formulas so well. Sleeper Agent is just getting started. I wouldn’t be surprised if these guys’ sophomore effort is a top-ten contender. Read more

[MP3] SLEEPER AGENT are going to GET IT hot and steamy for DADDY

oooh, i’m not a baby no more

♫ Sleeper Agent – Get It Daddy

Rambunctious drums, fuzzed-out guitar,  yelped vocals, and a dollop of “Ooh-oooh”s and we’ve got a firecracker of a jam to propel us out of any Easter-feast stupor we may be suffering from. This Kentucky based band have a full-length on the horizon in August but before then will be heading on the road with Cage The Elephant and Manchester Orchestra. I have a strong feeling that catching these guys live may be the best way to full soak in the sweat of their southern fried soul-punk. Mmm, mmm, good.
