At a time when music sites and social networking feeds supply endless amounts of info and feedback about bands with even the tiniest doses of cultural relevance, it's difficult for any hyped act to stay undissected for long. But as of this writing, Sleeper Agent are still at the head of their buzz cycle, with a bland MySpace page indicative of a branding blitz that will inevitably kick in.
Currently, there are only a handful of interviews and reviews dedicated to the group, yet the positive vibes they've been reeling in (one of the top guys at Spin magazine's website deemed them his “Best Discovery” at South By Southwest) mean that there's bound to be more details soon.
Let's get acquainted with them before the whole world does.
