Mute Records

These Systems Are Failing is an ablum that has much more in common with Moby's punk rock record Animal Rights than it does with his more classic releases. The album takes on a much more aggressive electropunk sound that hasn'tbeen explored very much by Moby previously. Electronics and guitars collide over drum machines and Moby's monotonous voice in an album far-removed from the Techno-Blues of Play.

Sleigh Bells

Mom+Pop

Sleigh Bells is an awesome power pop duo consisting of soft spoken vocalist Alexis Krauss, and Derek E. Miller of Poison the Well, who does production, guitars and also accompanies in songwriting. They have a fascinating sound which is layerd with crunchy guitars, synthesizers, drum machines, and Alexis' vocals as a soft flow above the noise pop duo which is Sleigh Bells. These tracks are off of their highly anticipated follow up to their critically acclaimed debut album 'Treats'.
