I wrote about Suckers last week here, where you can stream the debut album “Wild Smile”.

Then, during the week, they made a video for “Black Sheep” which you can see here

As if that was not enough to convince you of their Modest Mouse like talents they went and did some acoustic tracks for Fader, performing “Black Sheep” and “Martha”.

As I have said before, the band offer a old-style punch to the groin of guitar-pop. It soounds like Mgmt without pretension. On “Black Sheep, Quinn (I think anyway, though it is hard to pin down who is who since they all lend a line or several to the songs) sings, “I’m a little skeptical of how this will go”.

Judging by what we have seen from the Brooklyn-based band this week alone, he should feel safe in the knowledge that things might just work out ok. You can see the two Fader videos below.


By the by, Suckers are playing some forthcoming (albeit American) shows with some good bands in the future. Tokyo Police Club, Passion Pit, We Were Promised Jetpacks, and Menomena. Should make for some great entertainment.
