This band, Sleigh Bells, has been getting alot of hype lately. Right now it’s a Brooklyn buzz thing… but it’s a strong one. This track here (sounds like its ripped from a demo tape because the recording is fuzzy) is a sweet mellow tune sung over a bed of a Funkadelic sample, “Can You Get to That”.
The vocalist Alexis Krauss is a little superstar and fun to watch live. Go to YouTube to see some of their vibe. The original Funkadelic song is incredible… a mellow mix favorite. The rest of their album is a mix of other playful jams. Hope all this attention doesn’t kill them so early in their career. The energy is on point.
