Sleigh Bells – 4.11.10

This should be fun. A guy gal duo out of Brooklyn.

SXSW festivities. A little bit of LONDON and then a run with  MAJOR LAZER. Kicking it solo through out the North East with their stop in Burlington prior to hitting COACHELLA. Following all that fun they trudge on and hit the road with YEASAYER before capping it off at good old Pitchfork Fest in Chicago mid July.

maybe we can get some locals on the bill?

Sleigh BELLS

After this week, it’ll seem like Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss have come out of nowhere to form the outfit on everyone’s CMJ breakout list. But there are roots, dug deep and spread far: Past members of Sleigh Bells went on to form buzz-band Surfer Blood. Derek’s old hardcore band Poison The Well toured with Give Up The Ghost, the defunct hardcore outfit of past BTW Cold Cave’s Wes Eisold. Alexis Krauss is a school teacher with a pop-singer past. All of which gives certain strength to their reinvention in this excellent new outfit.

    …what? It says on their (sleigh bells) myspace that they’re playing in montreal the night of the 11th and it’s not listed on the higher ground calendar?
