Pick To Click: Sleigh Bells - "Infinity Guitars"

In this world of seemingly endless musical catagories, the latest substrata is "noise pop." And apparently Sleigh Bells, the name Brooklyn duo Alexis Krauss (vocals) and Derek Miller (guitar) have adopted, are Exhibit A in the genre given their raucous and aggressive approach to their craft.

TNOP has been sampling their debut album, Treats, over the past few weeks. While taking it in as a whole can be a little overwhelming at times, ultimately our view is the same as Mr. Bowie's: "Let's dance."

Sleigh Bells is currently on tour with LCD Soundsystem and Hot Chip. In mid-October they will play a handful of solo gigs in the US. Check out the tour schedule here.
