Sleigh Bells – Treats

This album is what I’m currently listening to in preparation for my last two finals. After hearing “Treats” on YouTube, I bought this album. Like, actually paid money to the music industry. People still do that, right? Anyway, this album is ridiculous. Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips said this about the album:

“There are only a couple of really wicked albums that get me to say “Fuck! That’s cool!” but this is one of them. The music is so simple but very distorted. There are hundreds of bands trying to do a similar sound who probably just suck. It’s hard to say why I like this — it’s like saying, “Why do I like pizza? I just like the way it tastes.” Their sound is so simple. Why didn’t a million people think of this before?”

I agree. It is fucking cool. Check out “Treats” below:
