Hello radio friends and fiends,
Music directors of the past used to blog about the weekly heavy rotation updates, what was good and what was favored, etc. Well, I’ve decided to pick up the mantle once more and try to keep this blog more updated on the heavy rotation front. We’ll see how it goes.
So far of this weeks ADDS, this artist has really caught my attention:
Sleigh Bells – “Reign of Terror”
The second full-length studio album from the electronic power-pop duo, this album is full of brain blasting synthetic beats and lyrics about suicide and possible illusions to war. Or something. While the lyrics are cheesy at worst, and love sick at best, the album as a whole is a pleasurable and yet fun listen. Recommended if you like Beach House, Cults and M.I.A. Best tracks of the album are, arguably, “Born to Lose” and “End of the Line.” This album also could have totally been part of the Drive soundtrack. If you haven’t seen that movie: GET ON IT.
“Treats” was a great album, but this album is deeper and darker, and by deeper I mean the attempt at depth is a little more obvious.
