Sleeper Agent premiered their new video for “That’s My Baby” yesterday and it’s awesome. The video features the band’s Alex Kandel and Tony Smith performing the song at a karaoke bar with almost too real backdrops. Directed by singer/guitarist Tony Smith, the video’s inspiration “came from a lack of sleep and too much time away from home” said Smith. “I wanted it to be dreamlike; something that’s relatively normal but seems ‘off’.”

It’s refreshing when a young rapper can bring something unexpected to the music scene; in Chancellor Warhol’s case it’s a fusion of hip hop and electronic rock. The Nashville-based rapper is an artist to watch, traveling through the summer’s biggest music festivals and working on a new project called Paris is Burning. Whether he’s spitting verses on a Lana Del Rey beat or debuting his new song South of France with Soda and Brad from Cage the Elephant, Chancellor Warhol is an up-and-comer with southern swag. Read on for his music, photos and an exclusive interview.

Welcome to the best weekend of the summer… Well, at least a preview of it. In a little less than 48 hours, some of music’s most popular acts (such as Eminem, Coldplay, Foo Fighters, My Morning Jacket) will grace the Grant Park stages and treat more than 100,000 fans a day to nights they will never forget. Obviously you’ll be there. There’s a lot of time before 8 pm though, and a lot of talent. Check these bands out!

Summerfest wrapped up its 44th year Sunday after an eleven day showcase of over 700 bands. I was lucky enough to snag tickets for the popular Milwaukee festival on Wednesday to see The Black Keys, Florence and the Machine and Cage the Elephant live. Cage the Elephant kicked off the night’s performances, and my friends and I arrived at the festival in time to catch a few of the band’s songs. I cannot say that I was the biggest fan of the Kentucky-originated band before I saw them live, and I have to admit that their performance did nothing to alter my opinion. Although the band put on a high-energy show, with lead singer Matthew Shultz weaving his way into the crowd on multiple occasions, Cage the Elephant proved to be a bit too scream-o for my taste.
