More Hotline pops, the countdown begins: Last year Brooklyn glitch-pop dup Sleigh Bells got the interwebz all fired up with the street-smart blast-hop bounce of single “A/B Machines.” They blew up SXSW in March, released some fierce sonic noise in latest offering “Tell ‘Em” and buzz is palpable on debut disc “Treats,” which drops May 11 off Mom & Pop Records and MIA’s label imprint N.E.E.T.
So if you’re already holding a ticket for tonight’s sold-out Yeasayer gig at the Paradise Rock Club, be sure to get there early to blow the eardrums out by the sly-wink Sleigh Bells kids. Buy some merch, too. Between this release and Crystal Castles’ lethal second disc, it’s certainly going to be a summer of loud, noisy pop. It's the sound of now.
