I grow old, Sleigh Bells don't
Sleigh Bells is a new band with an album called Treats. And it is really loud, glaring, and sort of like 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' for thirty-minutes without the super-smart lyrics, with punk girls and fuzz and funk. That is it feels blow-your-head open new and on a different level of noise and generation. I think this may be the first album that I recognise as genuinely excellent, subversive and fun that my ears will have to adjust to. I am no longer able to just jump right into the music's head, to be Larkin about it. But I am sidling up to this. I want to wear bells.
