Jasper the Colossal is a three piece rock band from Dayton, Ohio. Consisting of Paige Beller (lead vocals/bass), Sarah Kouse (drums/backing vocals), and Moriah Yux (guitar/backing vocals), the band has self-released two efforts (Prehistoric EP and Liar LP), which has culminated in a loyal and rowdy fan base. While JTC’s sound has changed a bit over the years, what remains steadfast is their punk rock spirit with danceable indie grooves.
Jasper’s latest LP, Take Your Time, will also be self-released with help from Gas Daddy Go! Records (the label of Don Thrasher, formerly of Swearing At Motorists and Guided By Voices). Take Your Time shows a different side of JTC and hints at things to come. It will be available February 26, 2016, through Gas Daddy Go!, and on I-Tunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, and more.

To celebrate the release, JTC has shared their video for “I’m Awake.” The clip was directed by low-budget indie auteur Henrique Couto. Enjoy:
