Last fall, Sleigh Bells’ Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller blessed us with a new 7 track mini-LP named Kid Kruschev. And now the Brooklyn noise pop duo has unveiled a new video for LP track Favorite Transgressions, a potent and emphatic congregation of the pair’s scaly sawing, cacophonous jarring sound. The video, directed by Derek Miller, is described as a manic, lo-fi thriller full of dynamic energy and playful morbidity. Sleigh Bells kicks off an extensive U.S. tour this week with a sold-out show at Rough Trade. The full run of tour dates can be found, here. Unfortunately, no Bay Area show is listed, but it looks like we might get to catch them in Austin at SXSW come mid-March considering their slot at the Mohawk on the 18th. Sunflower Bean and Dream Wife joins Sleigh Bells on select dates on their tour, too, making it a can’t miss for those lucky enough to catch them on this voyage. Kid Kruschev is available, here.

It’s a mighty fine day when beloved edgy Brooklyn noise poppers Sleigh Bells announce a new mini LP. Kid Kruschev arrives November 10th, and the pair have already shared a lead track off the release named And Saints. Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller go the dark electro pop route on their pensive new tune, leaving some of their more raucous and stringent elements behind. As someone who loves gothy, wavey music, this is right up my alley, though I’m sure they’ll also be offering up plenty of their usual clamorous fare in the coming months, too. The pair will be embarking on a massive North American tour this winter, with Sunflower Beam in support on multiple dates. As of now, there’s no San Francisco stop on their tour, though I’m hoping this will change. Pre-order their forthcoming 7 track mini-LP, here.

Watch the video for the title track below Bitter Rivals is deliciously noisy and filled with Alexis Krauss’ spunkiness, as expected.
