Sleigh! Bells!

With all the shit going down in Arizona, writing deadlines, physical pains, the economy...(the list goes on), the band Sleigh Bells came over my headphones tonight like a breath of fresh air...If fresh air were infectious poppy, funky electro-bliss that immediately lightens your mood by hitting you over the head - hard - with cotton candy. 

Here's a video of the opening track to their new album performed live at SXSW. They evidently had a lot of technical problems that night, but you can catch the joy in this version, nonetheless.

For a short time you can listen to the entire album Treats for free at NPR's Exclusive First Listen.  

Bob Boilen writes, "I recently made the mistake of putting it on at 6:45 a.m., and I don't think they meant for me to do that." Well, Bob, I haven't tried that yet, but I can tell you that at 11:04 p.m. Sleigh Bells is just what the ear doctor ordered.
