The Heaviest beats to date...

Sleigh Bells debut album 'Treats' is for those who want to smash insanely heavy beats out loud without the pretentious rap overlay from an underserving artist. Instead, the vocal overlay is a beautiful Alexis Krauss who adds this sort of new Indie theme to the manipulated, mind melting hip hop beats. The song writer, Derek Miller, just seemed to understand what the sound was meant to be, and executed it in a way that will surely create a new generation of Alternative music. Although it might sound strange, it all just seems to work together in such an excellent way that you keep hitting the reply button on your iPhone until the bass has massacred your speakers and left your heart pounding a million beats a minute, and just when you thought the album would be the same beats over and over, it surprises you with the song 'Rill Rill', which breaks up the heavy distortion session with an acoustic-esque sounding beat so great you thought it came from MGMT's Oracular Spectacular. My personal favourite is 'Riot Rhythm', which I think captures the idea of the album.

Buy this, play it loud, you won't regret it.

hey there...

For those who dislike this album, try playing it really loud on your car speakers.

sweetness meet distortion: treats

It seems like the boy-girl pop duo is growing in popularity. However, this album isn’t for the light of heart. Despite the fact that this duo supplies the typical eye candy and guitarist, this album supplies bucketloads of noise. Tinny iPod headphones don’t do this album justice, plug in into your huge speakers and take it all in.

A lot of people have classified this group into the noise-pop category, like Jesus and Mary Chain - the cursed genre that has never received greater chart success. Still, that’s not a musical judgement - a friend described this album as “easy to listen loud music”…and it’s pretty true.

Alexis Krauss’ vocals are almost too sweet on some tracks, but its the pure rawness of the backing track that brings balance to this album. From the cheerleader-inspired-pop sound of “Tell ‘Em” to the driving drum beats of “Riot Rhythms” to the infectious rawness of “Infinity Guitars”…do yourself a favour and get this album. And if you go deaf, don’t blame me (however, it’ll probably be totally worth it).

Biography

Formed: 2008 in Brooklyn, NY

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Combining sugary hooks with a loud, rhythmic crunch, Sleigh Bells' experimental pop is the project of songwriter/producer Derek Miller and vocalist Alexis Krauss. The musicians formed the group in New York in 2008, where Miller (a Florida native and onetime member of hardcore act Poison the Well) had relocated in the hopes of starting a new group. He found his ideal partner in Krauss, a former vocalist for the teenaged girl group Rubyblue, and the two began creating a batch of demos. The duo signed...
