Sleigh Bells review on!

May 7th 2010

"When you’re pushing That New Sound in 2010 it does not hurt to be The Loudest. We’re all gonna to be popping hearing aids by 40 thanks to MP3s and ear buds anyway, right? May as well make those hearing years count. So: Sleigh Bells make music to blow your ears out to. You may not be able to grasp certain frequencies after bracing through this particular waveform, but you will not regret it. Trent Reznor wishes he thought of this; so does Lil Jon.

Because those claps and snaps are nothing but crunk. Because nobody has made a guitar sound so hawkish since Jack White. Because it’s got the both the bone crunch of third and long and the pom-pom chants built in. Just look at that album cover– they’re about to assault many NFL highlight reels and the world will be better for it. Meanwhile, Sleigh Bells want to tell us– or ‘em– something. "All the kids these days/ Do you really wanna be that way?" goes the head cheerleader with the tattoos. She’s disappointed with this youth, but she’s not spitting on ‘em. She wants to see more, better. "You could do your best today," she hopes. It’s called leading by example."

From "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."

Sleigh Bells “Tell ‘Em” on!

April 28th 2010

From Pitchfork: "If you’re half awake get ready to be wide awake. "Tell ‘Em" is the first track from 2010’s promising purveyors of all things loud and pop, Sleigh Bells. Fair warning: This thing will rumble your insides if played at high volumes, i.e. the more of those tiny boxes on your laptop screen are white, the better it sounds."

Mom + Pop artists at Coachella!

April 21st 2010

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



"..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
