Jingling All The Way

Brooklyn's Sleigh Bells have finally released their debut album, the appropriately titled Treats. I've been a big fan ever since I heard the excellent "Crown on the Ground" last year and the majority of the new tracks are of a similar pedigree.

Such Great Heights

I've been listening to The Wild Hunt, the new album from The Tallest Man on Earth, almost incessantly since it was released over a month ago. It's one of those amazing records that grabs you firmly by the ears from the first listen and doesn't let go. He's Swedish, it's folk, it's amazing.

The new Black Keys album Brothers is one of my favourite albums of the year so far, and the new video for lead single "Tighten Up" is a winner as well:

Check out another track, the excellent "She's Long Gone":

The Return of Ratatat

So we all know their sound by now: screaming guitars, tribal rhythms, the occasional big cat howl. Ratatat are back with 'LP4', which was originally set to come out shortly after 'LP3' dropped two years ago.

Regardless, it is out in physical form now. Hopefully these guys do a bit more extensive touring, as their live show is incredible.

Party on!
