Mom + Pop artists Tokyo Police Club and Sleigh Bells played at Coachella last weekend.. Here’s what people have to say:
"In front of thousands of people, [Sleigh Bells'] music was on the right scale: massive, blunt and calibrated with jolts and silences to move big crowds. Ms. Krauss was on the move, too: twirling, leaping, waving, headbanging and exulting that the music had a big enough space to hold it." – NY Times ArtsBeat
"The Brooklyn duo Sleigh Bells, despite scant recorded output, pushed a lunchtime crowd into near delirium with its metal-inflected party pop." – LA Times
TOKYO POLICE CLUB:
"..earnest power-pop anthems… this band seems to be growing nicely into its sound. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Tokyo Police Club playing the main stage after dark in a year or two’s time."-Entertainment Weekly Music Mix

"BEST FRONTWOMAN HYBRID: SLEIGH BELLS
Alison Mosshart’s dangerous sex appeal + CSS singer Lovefoxxx’s upbeat dance-floor groove + Crystal Castles badass Alice Glass’ noisy ferocity = Alexis Krauss, a school teacher turned steamy indie siren leading Brooklyn duo Sleigh Bells. Saturday night, she shifted from hip-hop and electro sass to power-rock, gyrating her hips in black tights, a mesh shirt showing a hot pink bra, and gold hoop earrings. She flipped her hair and fired over low-end electro beats and terrorizing nu-metal guitars courtesy of ex-Poison the Well axeman Derek. "No, no, no!" she huffed and puffed. Actually, yes, yes, yes! — WILLIAM GOODMAN"

We are excited to announce that Brooklyn duo Sleigh Bells – comprised of Derek Miller (guitars/production) and Alexis Krauss (vocals) – will be releasing their debut album, Treats, on May 11th, 2010 with Mom + Pop Music in a special partnership with M.I.A.’s NEET Recordings.
Sleigh Bells have been heralded as one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from Brooklyn, following acclaim from the likes of The New Yorker, Pitchfork, Stereogum, The New York Times and more. With buzzing guitars, massive, head-nodding beats and sweet-as-sugar vocals on top, a Sleigh Bells song simply explodes from the speakers, sounding like nothing you’ve heard before.
