Sleigh Bells- Crown On The Ground

This duo from Brooklyn was named Pitchfork's 57th best track of 2009. Their debut album Treats was very well received. They are supposed to have a new release in early 2012. (Which they did, and Girlie was all over everything!!! Looking good, too.) Too popular for me now???? We'll see..... This track is great to play on a jukebox. It might blow the speakers.

You can check out Alexis Krauss' doing it live here:
