Sleigh Bells – Live in SLC

Sleigh Bells, one of my favorite new bands since literally the first time I heard them, came to SLC last week opening for Yeasayer. The crowd was mostly into it. “Crown on the Ground” was definitely recognized and the performance was good. It was quite a bit different than seeing them at SXSW but few performances are as intense as SXSW shows. Fortunately they did play a full set and I got it all recorded. They played all 5 songs they had released up to that point plus the one I recorded at SXSW and two new songs. Hopefully in time they can move away from the pre-recorded backing tracks and get some live electronics to add more of a band element but I still see Sleigh Bells one of the most promising bands of late.

And since the show Sleigh Bells released a studio version of “Tell ‘Em.” The album, Treats, comes out May 11 via M.I.A.’s NEET label.
