From NYmag.com: "Remember “Thug Love,” the awesome Bone Thugs N Harmony–Tupac song that uses the sound of a gun being cocked and shot as a beat? Sleigh Bells — the Brooklyn duo of Derek Miller, formerly of Florida hard-core band Poison the Well, and Alexis Krauss, who once sang in a teen-pop group called Rubyblue — just did it one better. The drums on the act’s new track “Tell ‘Em” go so hard we have to assume they were sampled directly from futuristic U.S. military weapons training covertly recorded by the duo after they accidentally stumbled upon a top-secret army base while on tour in Arizona. “Tell ‘Em” comes from Sleigh Bells’ debut Treats, out May 11. This is the kind of stuff we hope is playing when the world ends."
