The 25 Best Albums Of 2010

#7: Sleigh Bells, Treats

Released: May 11 (Click Here To Buy It Now On MP3)
Best Song: "Rill Rill"

The most buzzed-about indie band of the first half of 2010, Brooklyn-based duo Sleigh Bells more than lived up to the hype with their superb debut, Treats. Instrumentalist Derek Miller and vocalist Alexis Krauss found the perfect balance between chaos and beauty, crafting a barrage of distorted, industrial electro-pop that seems familiar and completely original at the same time. Jams like "Tell 'Em" and "Crown On The Ground" will kick a hole in your speakers, but they balance the raucous energy with slightly more refined pop epiphanies like "Rill Rill" and "Run The Heart." Fuzz has never been this catchy.
