Those Sleigh Bells jingling, ring ting tingling

Let's be honest, this blog will never be cool. But occasionally, just occasionally, my tase in music crosses paths with the kids who run the school stereo.

Today, that music is from "American noise pop duo" Sleigh Bells. Imagine MIA recording an album of nursery rhymes produced by The Go! Team. That is what Sleigh Bells sound like.

Their last single, Infinity Guitars, came out in September and deliberately gives the impression someone has stuck a knife in your loudspeaker.

It is pretty much the most exciting song you will hear this year. But only if you click "play" on the following video player thingamajig.

Sleigh Bells - Infinity Guitars

Hot on Infinity Guitars' heels is the equally-indendiary Riot Rhythm. The video treatment for this single appears to be "what if The Karate Kid was about chess?" It's delightfully barmy.

And now, my brush with hipster credibility already a fading memory, I'm off to listen to a Bimbo Jones remix of Rihanna's latest single.
