Daily Dose Pick: Sleigh Bells


After sending the hype machine into overdrive and blowing up the iTunes charts, M.I.A.’s favorite Brooklyn duo finally releases its debut album in physical form today.

Former Poison the Well guitarist Derek Miller made a radical musical shift when joining forces as Sleigh Bells with vocalist Alexis Krauss — whose own teen-pop past belies the visceral sounds of the band. Finding the meeting point between melody, noise, and all-out enthusiasm, Treats plays like a rabble-rousing cross between the Go! Team, Crystal Castles, and Maya herself.
