We love Anthony Bourdain. So we love that last night’s (final) season premiere of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations featured two Mom+Pop bands. The episode was shot in Austin back in March during SXSW. Bourdain caught up with Alan Palomo of Neon Indian to make the rounds at his favorite Austin haunts and hotspots, and then spent some time with Derek and Alexis from Sleigh Bells (along with a whole mess of their friends, and a whole mess of crawdads). You can catch a portion of the Sleigh Bells segment above, and the Neon Indian piece (along with the full Sleigh Bells piece) over on The Audio Perv.
Sleigh Bells unveiled the latest video from February’s Reign of Terror yesterday on Pitchfork.tv. The clip was directed by Sleigh Bells’ own Derek Miller and regular collaborator Gregory Kohn. The video comes on the eve of the band’s three date run with a resurgent Refused, which ought to whet the west coasts appetite in advance of the band’s lengthy Fall tour with AraabMusik beginning in October.

This one doesn’t need too much explanation! While they were in Austin for SXSW, Sleigh Bells caught up with Anthony Bourdain for an episode of No Reservations. The video above is just a taste of the full segment, which is scheduled to air on Travel Channel September 3rd as part of the season premiere of No Reservations.
Sleigh Bells’ newest video for the song “Demons” is out now. Directed by Derek Miller and Gregory Kohn, “Demons” is a Pantera-inspired “live” video using footage from Sleigh Bells’ recent Omaha, Oklahoma City, Dallas and Houston shows. Watch it below.
In addition to the video, Pitchfork is also premiering an exclusive remix of “Demons” done by past tourmate Diplo. Check it out below.
