Gorilla Bells?

This is one where I basically tell y'all to not sleep on a couple of artists. One you know. One you may not. Who knows. You all seem to be pretty bright and all Johnny on the spot and stuff. Good for you.

Anyhow, there's this band by the name of Sleigh Bells. They're noisy. I mean really noisy. Just not in that way where you want to stab out your own eardrums. It's good stuff. Most of the music is programmed in, with only the guitar being the live instrument. Well they made somewhat of an impact in that they got the attention of Pitchfork, who I personally can't stand. But hey, they get throngs of hipsters to read, so I guess they aren't all bad, right? So when "Crown to the Ground" came out last year, it piqued my attention, and ended up being listed in Pitchfork's top 100 of 2009. Well played. Well played, indeed. So here we have "Tell 'Em", which is just as noisy and raucous. So enjoy it.

Next is one you really don't need an introduction or explanation for. The Gorillaz. Seriously. Do I need to describe these guys to you? Really? You know. Damon Albarn? The guy from Blur? Yeah, the people that did that song "Clint Eastwood". Correct. Well, this is "Glitter Freeze". And it's pretty badass. That is all.

Now. Buy shit. Because I said so.
