Wild Cub
Wild Cub
Wild Cub formed in early 2012 when songwriter/composer Keegan DeWitt and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Bullock stripped down a small Nashville row house to build a custom studio. In this space, and together with friend and drummer/producer Dabney Morris, they would record and eventually form a five-piece band around their debut albumYouth. The album saw a remastered wide release – including two bonus tracks, “Blacktide” and “Lies,” the latter produced by Jim Eno (Spoon) – through Mom+Pop on January 21, 2014. Wild Cub has performed rising single “Thunder Clatter” onLate Night with Jimmy Fallon and will make their Conan debut on April 10th, and has appeared on the pages of The New York Times, Billboard, Alternative Press, and MAGNET, among others. Following a January/February US headlining tour that saw multiple sold-out shows, Wild Cub’s busy 2014 will continue with dates supporting American Authors and then Vampire Weekend this spring and additional summer festivals.
Sleeper Agent
Sleeper Agent
In the three whirlwind years since Sleeper Agent released its debut, Celabrasion, its members have played everywhere from the Coachella festival to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. They've opened for Weezer, Circa Survive, and fun. And "Get It Daddy," their dizzying anthem about growing up, has appeared in Taco Bell ad, while their bustling high-five to indefatigability, "Not Never," has soundtracked a Nike clip.

These days, the sextet—which also includes singer/guitarist and principal songwriter Tony Smith, bassist Lee Williams, guitarist Josh Martin, drummer Justin Wilson, and keyboardist Scott Gardner—are bent on jettisoning past their title as the Little Act That Could from Bowling Green, Kentucky. "Sleeper Agent started out as a fun, goofy side project," explains Tony. "I don't want this to be silly for the rest of my life. I want to embrace this seriously and treat it with respect for the people responding to it. About Last Night is a stepping stone."

Though their ambitions have grown, Sleeper Agent's approach continues to be disarmingly simple: delivering joyously melodies, even when they're bumming out. For instance, About Last Night's first single, "Waves," manages to be both plaintive and percussive—ruminating on the rigors of touring, then snapping out of that depression. Concedes Tony: "That was me, excavating my emotions."
Sr.
Sr.
Sr. (formerly Thee The The) have quickly become forerunners in the resurgence of alternative rock. Their ripped to the bone chaos and energy is balanced with surprisingly simplistic songwriting and the slightly buried, breathy vocals of singer / guitarist Val Bernsten, making you almost want to dredge up a Breeders or Sonic Youth album and blast it to the edge of blissful numbness.
