Sleeper Agent released their first full length album, Celebrasion, in 2011. It's gritty, creative, and sonically spastic. It's fuzzy grunge rock to the tune of the angry teen, but it's done in a fresh, young way that's more awesomely-riot-inducing than whiny do-over. Not to mention, their live shows are a trip--think constant, tireless energy. Lead singer Alex "Kidd" Kandel is a monster on stage, and her vocals fit the music's youthful grunge perfectly. The album as a whole and the band's presence are so much fun, and I can just imagine how incredible it al will be beneath the daze of the Coachella sun, dancing your ass off before some seriously talented kids.
And, if you're one of the unlucky (read: broke and/or unorganized) ones like me, Sleeper Agent recently announced that they're touring with Ben Kweller (aaand my life is now complete...well, almost). The two bands will be in Los Angeles at the El Rey on April 25th (expect a review on Bestnewbands.com by yours truly). Click here for more details about that show.
