Shannon And The Clams - "Sleep Talk"

I picked up Shannon And The Clams debut, I Wanna Go Home, after a great set at last year's Bender. And now she is back with another slab of retro garage pop, and judging by the lead single, this album will be even better. However, judging from the album art, it could be a little creepier, which isn't too surprising since lately she's been playing with the wonderfully sleazy Hunx And His Punx. "Sleep Talk" (mp3) starts out a yearning stroll that slowly ratchets up the emotion until the vocals are up in red. The album come out April 5th on 1-2-3-4 Go! Records. In the meantime, if you are lucky, you can catch Shannon out on tour with the Hunx and Clams.
