Album Review

When Kentucky-based rockers Sleeper Agent emerged in 2011 with their debut, Celabrasion, they sported a scrappy sound full of pop-punk hookiness clothed in lo-fi garage production. It was a sound that worked for the six-piece band, lending some character to its songs, which seemed to pack a lot of ideas into short three-minute bursts. Three years and many tours later, the band returns with its major-label follow-up, 2014's About Last Night. Working again with producer Jay Joyce (the Wallflowers, Cage the Elephant), Sleeper Agent, led by frontwoman Alex Kandel, still pack a lot of pop punch but with softer edges, cleaner arrangements, and wholly more modern production values, making for a more diverse second effort. Lead single "Waves" sparkles with melody in the grand singalong style of more folk-based contemporaries like Of Monsters and Men. Likewise, tracks like "Take It Off" amp up the band's more mainstream pop-punk elements. While About Last Night seems to bounce around from style to style, there are certainly some unique results from this experimentation. The mostly acoustic closer, "Sweetheart," is an unexpected Latin-influenced pop song with stacked harmonies, and the excellent "Impressed" harks back to the melodic punk of their first album. About Last Night shows that Sleeper Agent have melodies and ideas to spare, and the album's more mainstream approach shows their willingness to evolve.

Customer Reviews

One of my favorite up and comers

I remember seeing this band open for Cage The Elephant and The Manchester Orchestra and walking away wanting to know more. Their debut album "Celabrasion" dropped a few months later and it was fantastic. I've only heard the single "Waves" off of this one, but they continue to have that same sound from their last album and I for one cannot wait to hear the rest of the album.

Pop record

My initial listen has left me disappointed. There is hardly any use of heavy guitar present, which I miss. I feel like they have sold out.

Another great album

I loved every track! Alex really embraces her Kentucky roots with "Lorena". Great album, the lyrics are full of emotion that the Celebrasion lacked.

Biography

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

With their combination of driving guitars, manic energy, and big singalong choruses, Sleeper Agent merge pop-punk's sugary effervescence with garage rock swagger. Originally formed as a duo by singer/guitarist Tony Smith and drummer Justin Wilson, the Bowling Green, Kentucky band decided to expand its lineup after Smith and Wilson spotted singer Alex Kandel belting out Adele covers at a local open-mike night. Not stopping there, the band decided to fill out their sound even more, upgrading to a sextet...
