    let's re-focus this. alexis' hotness is definitely a good way to start getting back on topic. my brother and i were going apeshit on the right side of the stage (sleigh bells' left). the crowd around us was pretty dead, so we were easy to spot. alexis came over for a bit and eye-fucked the two of us for a while. it made our friday.

    i felt like an ass after their set. when they were setting up, i was screaming allison. i remembered after their set that allison = dead weather/kills, alexis=sleigh bells. for shame.

    my only disappointment: they didn't show up for their artist signing at zia.

    ON A SIDE NOTE: if anyone has Sirius radio, they're co-hosting on XMU this week.

    I was wondering about that signing, seeing as how they had no release to sign. I guess not showing up is one way to solve that dilemma.

    Yeah, when you only have five songs, how do you not play the best one? I'm kind of torn about the set. On one hand, it was pitifully short and didn't even include "Ring Ring", but on the other hand, they did have a lot of energy and parts of it were really good, minus the moments that devolved to pointless screaming.

    I think it's probably for the best that bands stop playing fests like this when they don't have an album released (or even finished) yet.

    I asked the DJ interviewing Sleigh Bells to ask them a couple of questions, like why they didn't show up from the signing. What I received back was a message from Alexis Krauss (lead singer) which shocked me to say the least. Apparently they didn't know there was any signing. I'm guessing their manager booked them for the signing and never told them? I was going to have them sign my Coachella water bottle and iPhone case lol

    Album out this Tuesday, and it's incredible. They've been playing the new tracks on Sirius radio and there's only been 1 song I wasn't crazy about. I'm sure it'll eventually grow on me anyways.

    This band is horrible. Worse than Die Antwoord simply for the fact that these guy are not a joke. I want them to go away.

    I really like the singles I've heard, and I also have high hopes for the album. However, the "Knick Knack Patty Whack" formula had me rolling on the ground laughing about its precise accuracy.

    Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed their set, however, there was a part of me that was snicking at their formulated performance.

    Track 7 of 11 and I'm very happy with it, now. The record is just a ton of fun.

    Listening to Treats for the first time right now and I am blown away. Flown the buck away. This version of Ring Ring is incredible. They are going to be great opening for M.I.A. in July. I don't care how much she screams, either. That's such a sad song about crown on the ground, Anna.

    Fuck I just remembered how bad this show was.

    I think it's hilarious how completely polarizing the opinions on this band are. I thought the ep and the Coachella set were fun. Nothing more. I downloaded the album last night but haven't listened to it.

    I'm sure i'll enjoy it but I can't imagine being blown away by it. I am surprised by the really vitriolic reactions to them though.

    Is it just me or did some of these songs sound better on the EP? (the ones that are common to both the ep and album) Still listening through. Had to pause it to do some con calls.

    It's honestly just a matter of opinion. I think the new ending to Infinity Guitars is fucking amazing, I think Crown on the Ground sounded a bit better on the EP, but I really, really enjoy the Rill, Rill on the album. It took me my set of headphones, the couch, and a few spins to really enjoy it.

    the album mix is much more commercial sounding, but still has some lofi buzziness.

    Default Re: Sleigh Bells=amazing!

    yup. bought the album last night and have had it on repeat ever since.

    you're right, it is a little more commercial sounding. i don't like how they took some of the edge off of the drop on a/b machines, but even still.. this album is one of the few i've been this excited about. it's still incredible regardless of the slight alterations (and like kylie said, some of them actually work)

    i love all of the tracks, but my favorites are straight a's, tell'em, a/b machines, and riot rhythm.

    Disappointed in the record.
