About this time last year, Sucker's debut EP got our bodies moving. I loved it, reviewed it for P4k and like a lot of records, only came back to it in passing thereafter. As propulsive as that record was, it felt a lot like most good EPs should: an appetizer. There simply wasn't enough. "Black Sheep" is the first listen from the Frenchkiss signees' forthcoming full-length debut. It's also kinetic enough to eclipse whatever promise its looser, janglier predecessor boasted. The Brock and Byrne influences are still there but only in the wings—if the rest of Wild Smile contains as much as energy as this, Sleigh Bells may have some serious competition in the summer jamz mixtape department. Album's out June 8, mpfree is below and for your eyeballs, there's a Backyard video flashback after the leap.
Suckers, Black Sheep
