And the bells they will ring

Sleigh Bells – Tell ‘Em

I haven’t listened to music for days now – smack-dab in the middle of the lull, and so am in need of awakened senses; for the smell to return, for the vibrancy of colour synaesthesia to blind me. Tell ‘Em is the crack of finger snap, the dispersing wave of guitar response, the frantic rev of sound that falls somewhere between a video game shooter and an engine on start up. Krauss’ vocal styling reaches keyboard imitation as it occasionally rises to the collapse of a final syllable. Its frantic nature fails to diminish as it carries you aboard a provoked drum machine and surging pelts and belts of tumultuous guitar notation.
