    Default Sleigh Bells sound like a win to me

    No clue who they were before I saw the lineup.



    Well, sure.
    *based upon tedious fact checking.

    They're pretty good. The guitarist used to be in Poison The Well. There is a 5 or 6 song demo floating around somewhere.

    They supposedly killed it at CMJ, which is where all their buzz comes from. And Crown on the Ground is a very solid song...they're one of the bands I'm most excited to see put out material in the next couple of years, so I'm excited to get to see them in what I'm sure will be the blisteringly hot early afternoon.

    Am I the only one who finds those live videos really unimpressive? I dunno, looks kinda dull. I liked the album though.
