Reign of Terror (Singles)

Artist: 
Sleigh Bells
Label: 
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'.

The Golden Age of Knowhere

Artist: 
Funeral Party
Label: 
RCA Records

Funeral Party formed out of the LA underground dance punk scene in 2004 and this is their debut album release.  They named themselves after the Cure song of the same name. This whole album is high energy dance punk.  I remind me of the Vines and Strokes sort of mixed into one.  ***Some of the best tracks are unairable so I recommend looking the censored version up online. **** (for tracks 1,5 especially!!!)

Sounds Like: 
The Vaccines, Little Comet, Chapel Club, Joy Formidable, Bombay Bicycle Club
