EDITORS’ NOTES

There's no escaping Sleigh Bells' brain-rattling noise blitz, especially when it comes served in seductive pop hooks. The duo's 2010 debut album works off these extremes with blistering results: Guitarist Derek Miller dials up his effects well past the red zone with a salvo of gunshot beats ("Tell 'Em"), some blown-out riffs ("Infinity Guitars"), and even a swinging Funkadelic sample ("Rill Rill"); soothing it all are Alexis Krauss' precious purrs, which pour over everything like honey on a fresh wound.

"Clean" version is the real version

FYI to all the buyers, the band tweeted that the "Clean" version is the real version. They managed to not throw in any curses.

This album is excellent though. This band is awesome. Buy this album!

Treat for Your Ears

This will be one of the greatest albums of 2010. Flat out. Just the thought of a guitarist from some forgotten hardcore band playing with a elementary school teacher singing and yelling side by side is just too amazing. Hearing the bass fight the treble is one of the most painfully exhilarating you will ever hear. Treats is awesome.
