Sleigh Bells – “Tell ‘Em”

I’m calling it now: Sleigh Bells will be owning 2010.  “Tell ‘Em”, the first taste of the duo’s forthcoming debut LP, Treats, is as immediately gratifying as songs come.  This band is pure id.  After their defiantly LOUD and distorted demo circulated last year, I was very curious how Sleigh Bells would sound with some proper production work.  Well, here’s the short answer: way the fuck better.  The long answer: their beats still hit like mortar shells and the guitars are still pure, fist-pumping swagger, but everything in the mix is much more crisp.  Not to mention, frontwoman Alexis Krauss’ vocals sound straight-up pretty.

Treats is out 5/11 via N.E.E.T.
