Sleigh Bells on repeat

sleigh-bells-001

Breathlessly unrelenting from the first seconds, this song makes me feel like I was walking down a street in some post-apocalyptic foreign city and suddenly got caught in a really awesome game of guerilla laser tag. With a girl band from the Sixties.

Tell ‘Em – Sleigh Bells

sleighbellsSleigh Bells is a duo from Brooklyn who were just signed to M.I.A.’s label NEET Recordings. Their debut album Treats is out this week through Mom + Pop Records. You can stream the whole thing at NPR this week; I can’t stop listening.



I am off to Mesa Verde this weekend to see the remains of rad ancient civilizations. I did a report on it once when I was a nine-year-old living in California, and I’ve been fascinated ever since by the cliff dwellings the Anasazi left behind. Now it’s driving distance away, so I found a friend and we’re off. Since it’s May and supposed to be warm and gorgeous, I borrowed my dad’s little convertible car for our long drive, but instead, we’re flirting with snow. Ah well. It’s an adventure.

  • I’m looooooving Sleigh Bells. I’ve listened to the album on NPR at least four times in the last 24 hours. And I’ve told anyone who would listen to check ‘em out, too. The NPR review mentions “aural assault” and I couldn’t agree more, it’s bombarding me, but I don’t ever want it to stop.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
