Funkadelic and Sleigh Bells

Dec 13th, 2009 : by :: Tags: , ,

Thanks to the great blog Everybody Taste I discovered the band Sleigh Bells.  I was very skeptical at first and was originally drawn to the song because I recognized the Funkadelic sample of “Can You Get to That?”.  After about a minute in I was sold.  The song sucks you in, and gets better every time you listen to it.  This is a great band, and although “Ring Ring” is one of their more chill songs this band boasts bombastic beats that are only matched by the sheer amount of distortion used to produce their sound.  This fuzzy groove is complimented by the soft, cool and cutting vocals of the bands singer Alexis Krauss.  Supposedly they are releasing an EP soon, and you can track down various singles on iTunes, hypem, and your favorite mp3 blogs.  Enjoy!

PS:  Check out Sleigh Bells song “Crown on the Ground”.
