It was only last month that a track from Phoenix’s Bankrupt! was the R. Kelly treatment, and now, another song from that album has been remixed: This time it’s “Chloroform,” and the remixers are Sleigh Bells.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

There were too many good music videos this week. Moby escaped the usual Wayne Coyne acid-reflux and made something fun and pretty and way friendlier than most of Coyne’s recent fare. TV On The Radio turned a meteor into a sympathetic character. They Might Be Giants taught pieces of broccoli how to play air guitar. More »

Sleigh Bells – “Never Say Die (AraabMuzik Remix)”

It just makes sense that Sleigh Bells and AraabMuzik are spending their autumns touring together. Both of them bring to live some combination of pop, dance, and horrible, scraping noise. And both have sweaty, intense, physical live shows. And for some sense of the epic heaviness these shows might bring, here we have Araab chopping… More »

Pitchfork Festival 2012: Grimes, Danny Brown, Sleigh Bells & More

At ginormous festivals like Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, it’s pretty tough to craft a narrative — when there’s something like 200 bands playing over a weekend, it’s next to impossible to really sew a singular thread through the weekend’s performances. Pitchfork Music Festival is much smaller — 45 bands in three days — so, it’s a… More »

Earlier today, Sleigh Bells stopped by Zane Lowe’s BBC show and aired a couple of acoustic tracks they’d recorded for a Maida Vale session.
