Bitter Rivals by Sleigh Bells
Released: Oct 2013
Label: Mom & Pop Music
Sleigh Bells' third album is their thinnest in every way: It's a lean 29 minutes, and the sonics are spry, needling and punchy. See "Young Legends," filled with razor-sharp 808 handclaps, flamenco guitar and synths that sound squirted out of a kitchen bottle. If this is Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller's attempt to shake off the expectations to sound heavier with each release, it worked. Bitter Rivals shows off Krauss' bubblegum songwriting and songbird vocal chops and Miller's zappy button-mashing programming -- though his clever work with power chords is still one of the biggest attractions.
