Sleigh Bells – Reign of Terror: Album Review

February 21, 2012 § 5 Comments

Sleigh Bells dropped a grenade onto the music scene with 2010’s Treats, a debut album that was filled with messy distortion and deranged guitar riffs. Their sophomore effort Reign of Terror (released today) has softened that blow, reflecting the duo’s understanding of sonic refinement.

The album opens with “True Shred Guitar” – an arena-like prelude that pumps up the listener for the wild journey they are about to take on Reign of Terror. Following is the first single “Born To Lose”, the weirdly cool mash of Krauss’ euphoric vocals and Miller’s thrashing guitar riffs.

80’s pop is the driving factor on this record and is best found in “Crush”. It begins with cheerleader-inspired handclaps, crazed hair metal melodies, playful guitar wiggles and Krauss repeatedly breathing “Oh Oh/I got a crush on you…”

“End of the Line”, an unexpected mid-tempo ballad, serves as the isolated comedown to the other fast-paced tracks. It is oddly romantic and has an air of nostalgia as the lyrics reflect on a lost love. John Hughes is looking down wishing he had it for the Pretty in Pink soundtrack.

New Video: Sleigh Bells – “Comeback Kid”

January 24, 2012 § 1 Comment

A few days ago, my favorite noise-pop duo, Sleigh Bells, released their first official single off their upcoming album Reign of Terror. Now 90s-influenced “Comeback Kid” has an accompanying video!

It is pretty badass, in that hazy 90s Florida-surburbia kind of way.

Watch below:
