Sean, I just got free tickets to see Sleigh Bells tonight, and so I thought I'd check out some of their stuff (I will admit, I tend to avoid anything popular or hyped because as you put it so well, 'I am an asshole'). 2 or 3 tunes in, I could thing of nothing but Ec8or. I googled 'Sleigh Bells Ec8or' and boom, found this charming little article which totally sums up my own feelings. I'm rather fascinated by this whole thing and I'm interested to see the show tonight.

The interesting thing is that I'm sure that a lot of people out there think that Sleigh Bells are a relentlessly 'new' sound. The DU sound was so raw and underground that it's still fresh, even if it's being played by a dork and a model.

To me, this shit sounds like 'hey mickey' through a fuzz pedal, but it is loud as shit, which always puts a smile on my face. Deutcshland (Has Gotta Die) would still tear these bands a new asshole in seconds, mind you.

Pop will eat itself, and at a faster rate than ever before. I think I'm going to start an New Kingdom rip off band before someone else does.
