New Sleigh Bells: Born to Lose

Share this post

If one were to ask pretty much anyone who has seen Sleigh Bells for their opinion of the band’s live show, and then reduce that review to the most common response, it would be something like: “They melt your face.”  And, indeed they do.

I feel fortunate to have seen them a handful of times — and been kicked out of one of their shows as well, (which is an entirely different story that involves lederhosen, steeplechases, and girls under the age of 21) — and to have had the opportunity to meet Alexis Krauss after one of those shows.  (She was as nice as they are rockin’, which is a considerable statement).

After canceling on Lollapalooza this past August to commence work upon another record, the first fruits of that labor have reached the InterWebs.  Enjoy.  Then….exhale.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
