#29-SLEIGH BELLS-Treats (Mom + Pop)

Mixing noise, electronica and guitar fuzz this Brooklyn duo’s presentation card, ‘Crown of the Ground’, was a sure shot that went straight to trend makers’ jugular, earning instant plaudits as the next big thing. M.I.A. signed them for their label and the way was paved for one of the most hyped up debuts of the year. The record didn’t disappoint, building up on the character of their first tracks in a way that reveals Derek E. Miller´s hardcore past and singer Alexis Krauss keenness for teen pop tunes. Lack of diversity, though, prevents it from classic status, but for an act that´s just started there’s still plenty of time for the promise to be fulfilled.
