I wrote last week about wishing I could listen to the new M.I.A. single, “Born Free” (in addition to being a world-class Tweeter, she also writes songs, you know), on an actual stereo as opposed to my shitty laptop speakers. I’m having that feeling again right now, with “Tell ‘Em,” the new single form Sleigh Bells forthcoming and seemingly aptly-titled debut full-length, Treats. It is a monster: highly energetic and as hooky as it is abrasive. If the rest of the record is this good, then man, May 11th cannot come soon enough. [via Pitchfork]
