Currently Digging: Sleigh Bells

I know at this point I’m not educating anyone about this group, but I’ve been rocking them too much lately for me not to post about them.  Above is the cover art for Treats, the debut from Sleigh Bells, a Brooklyn duo consisting of a former hardcore rocker and a (supposedly former) elementary school teacher.  Treats drops on May 11 on Mom+Pop and MIA’s N.E.E.T. Recordings.

If you’ve never heard Sleigh Bells, and you’re at work or in a public setting, turn your speakers down NOW.  Shit is loud.  Basically they record sweet-as-candy singalong pop and record it on in-the-red settings so it’s blaring at a sometimes-unbearable level….on second thought, crank that shit.

All of the songs below will be on the new album.

Sleigh Bells – Crown On The Ground

Sleigh Bells – Infinity Guitars

Sleigh Bells – A_B Machines

Sleigh Bells – Tell ‘Em
