Shannon & The Clams latest record, Sleep Talk, is easily one of our favorites to come out this year. If you caught them at The End a few weeks back with Hunx, then you know that it’s just as good live – if not even better. They debuted a video today for the titletrack off the album and it’s pretty sick. It’s got floating instruments and oceanside beds and glitter vomit [suck it, kesha] and it was directed by Miss Hannah Lew of Grass Widow fame. We’ll mostly take any reason we can find to make mention of how much we like these guys. 1-2-3-4-Go! Records, who put Sleep Talk out, are also putting out King Lollipop’s debut LP a little later this summer. As soon as we get a date, we’ll let you know about it because we’ve heard it and it kills. And if you haven’t all ready, pick up one of the year’s best right here.
