Villain—a.k.a. Carmen Maria Hillestad, former cover girl for Vogue, Glamour, Elle, and more—famously traded in a career as a top model for a guitar and recorded Sleeper (by Smalltown Supersound) in 2013. Released after years of writing in private, the album is brooding, sinuous, and punctuated by moments of shoegaze and Villain’s seductive voice.
