New Releases, Tuesday, June 1
Sleigh Bells‘ Treats, the most hysterically hyped debut of 2010, gets its physical release today. (It’s been out digitally since May 11.) If you even casually read about music on the web, you have probably heard at least a few tracks. If not, they sound like Crystal Castles or M.I.A. (who is releasing the album through her N.E.E.T. label in conjunction with Mom + Pop Records), or about nine hundred other acts that Internet People have compared them to. The Brooklyn duo’s very huge, very awesome, bone-rattling production may or may not translate well to vinyl.
