Sleigh Bells Warehouse Live April 18, 2012
Sleigh Bells has to be one of the most polarizing bands in recent memory.
To really get a bead on a band these days, you have to go to iTunes. So I looked up Sleigh Bells. "How did this get made?" wondered one reviewer about Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller's 2010 debut LP, Treats. "If the Terminator had a playlist it worked out to, this is it," offered another.
So somewhere between "Just Awful," "Raw Power" and the usual gripes about the new album, Treats, not being as good falls Sleigh Bells. And from what I saw Wednesday at Warehouse Live, that's about right on the money.
