Sleigh Bells Release Second Single Off of Reign of Terror: “Comeback Kid”

Posted in Music News, News with tags , , , , , on Tuesday, January 31, 2012 by Eric Gilardi

The second single off of the new Sleigh Bells album, Reign of Terror, has been released for viewing over at reignofterror.tv. This has happened not a moment too soon since I can not or choose not to remember the name of the first single. “Comeback Kid” has gotten me, once again, excited for the sophomore album by the popular Brooklyn, New York duo. After hearing the first single I was thinking, “Oh no, another follow-up failure to an unprecedented debut album.”

Major Disappointment of 2011: Sleigh Bells cancelling Lollapalooza.

Major Excitement of 2012: When I see Sleigh Bells for the first time, hopefully at Lollapalooza.

First off, I want to say that Sean Price is a fucking monster. This guy can rhyme better than 90% of the emcees that are out there right now. Thanks to the homeboy Shake, we have three new joints off of P’s upcoming album Kimbo Price. The first track is entitled “Duck Down” and it features fellow Brooklyn fire-spitters Skyzoo & Torae. I don’t really think that I need to tell you readers that these guys raid this beat like a SWAT team, and Skyzoo even drops a dope ass Prop Joe reference from The Wire. On the other two tracks, “MegaSean” & “Boostin’ Mobiles”, Sean P rides solo and shows why he’s easily one of the best and most witty emcees in the game. You aren’t sleeping on Jesus Price Superstar are you?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

As you may remember, I posted the artwork & tracklisting for Skyzoo’s album, The Salvation, last week. This is the video for the first single off of the album. The track is beautifully produced by none other than 9th Wonder, and the video concept for this song is fresh as hell. Skyzoo spits each verse passionately from a different spot in Brooklyn. Being able to listen to tracks like this make me crave this album real bad.

You know, I don’t know why I’m on such a music video kick this week, but maybe it’s just that there’s where more music videos coming out this summer that are worthy of my attention than usual. While I’m reminsicing of my time spent in front of the TV as a youth, absorbing any and all videos coming for late night MTV2, I won’t slow down; Vivian Girls have posted a video for the new track “Moped Girls” from their new 7 inch on Rough Trade (the same cats who are also peddling the new “Get Over It” 7-inch from our local favorites in Solid Gold) which is limited to 1000 copies; grab it now while they’re still cheap. Additionally, the vinyl will contain a b-side track called “Death”, and you can pick this up over at Rough Trade’s website.

Sunday Metal Minute: Krallice, “Wretched Wisdom”

Posted in Sunday Metalhead Minute with tags , , , , , , , , on Sunday, March 15, 2009 by Ryan Buege

I already clued you all in on the fact that we’re having some brilliant black metal tours coming to the Twin Cities this summer, but now things are just getting ridiculous. This week, the announcement was made that the visionary BM minds of Wolves in the Throne Room and Krallice would join together in what is sure to be THE “must-see” underground metal tour to pass through Minneapolis this spring. On May 15th, Wolves in the Throne Room will be playing at the Triple Rock Social Club with Krallice supporting. While I’ve already mentioned the scathing-yet-epic majesty that is WITTR on the site, Krallice is a band that has not gotten enough attention from me so far (besides the one sentence I gave them in my end of 2008 honorable mentions list). Reading descriptions of the band, you might think that their entrancing style of progressive black metal would already have an established predecessor. However, upon hearing Krallice’s fervent, psychedelic, rampaging, technically superior sound, it doesn’t take long to pick up on the freshness of this band’s delivery. Metal has never sounded so simultaneously brutal, ferocious, and atmospheric, which is certainly saying a lot. Krallice is a underground band that is literally pushing the limits of sound. This is a band to watch out for, and the free “Wretched Wisdom” track we have linked below will show you why.

Brooklyn, NY shoegaze/post-punk band A Place To Bury Strangers has posted the new video for their song of fuzz-soaked melodies entitled “My Weakness” off their self-titled debut on Pitchfork.tv. This intense video of high contrast imagery was directed by Dylan Mulick and was filmed partly in Vasquez Rocks (aka Star Trek’s filming location). Watch the video here.
