I cannot wait for this record, or for their opening stint with The Red Hot Chili Peppers this spring. BTB favorites, Sleigh Bells, have a way of continuously grating my ears to shreds with their signature bone-rattling rhythms. For a comfort zone music listener, the Brooklyn-based duo may at first seem frightening. But you will quickly find that the fear rapidly turns into a pleasurable mind-blowing assault.
Although their second album, Reign of Terror, isn’t set for release until February 21st, you can get their lead single, Comeback Kid, now. Hard to call it a comeback when theyâ€™ve been here the whole time, robust and forceful.
I hear those Sleigh Bellâ€™s ring-a-ling; may the chest-thumping force be with you.
