Treats, the full-length debut of Brooklyn duo Sleigh Bells, was birthed into a post-audiophile world. The group’s guitarist-songwriter-producer Derek Miller could’ve reacted to this fact by crafting a meticulous, highly orchestrated LP along the lines of acclaimed efforts by his borough-mates Grizzly Bear or Dirty Projectors. Instead, Miller flipped the script. Apparently he feels that if even the most fervent Sleigh Bells fan is going to bump Treats on tinny laptop speakers rather than a decent stereo system, it might as well sound like it’s pushing into the red either way. The blown-out sonics of tracks like »
I've already shared the latest DVDs to hit shelves, but if you're more in the mood for some tunes, this week's music releases are ready to rock your socks off. Violets are blue: Indie rockers The National bring us their fifth studio album, High Violet. It's predictable in the best way possible, with lead singer Matt Berninger crooning out more anthems for the lovesick and heartbroken. The opening track, "Terrible Love," is indicative of the band's knack for writing songs that are catchy and depressing at the same time, but check out "Bloodbuzz Ohio" for something a bit more upbeat. I'm also loving the stripped down ballad "Runaway." See Jack play: Jack White's other other band, The Dead Weather, returns with its second album, Sea of Cowards, and it's a rough and tumble ride. That is entirely a good thing - because this is real rock 'n' roll. "Blue Blood Blues, »
Sleigh Bells ring, are you listening? Treats, the debut effort from noise-rock newcomers Sleigh Bells, is the logical conclusion of the loudness war; it manages to challenge basic assumptions of how music can (and should) sound. You either buy the Brookyln duo’s central conceit or you don’t: bombastic synth-rock for bombast’s sake, with mixing cranked so high your speakers sound like they’re about to combust. It’s a preposterous juxtposition—Alexis Krauss’ way-past-sweet vocals as the sugary glaze on Derek Miller’s gritty and serrated riffing and beats—until the soaring power chords of opener and single “Tell ‘Em” kick off the album with »

Toronto -- Tina Keeper ("North of 60"), Don Burnstick, Jennifer Baxter and Blues musician Derek Miller have joined the second season cast of the Canadian TV soap "Cashing In" from Animiki See Digital Productions and Buffalo Gal Pictures.
They join a returning cast for the Aptn half-hour dramedy about a fictional First Nations-run gambling palace in Manitoba that includes Eric Schweig, Wesley French, Karen Holness, Glen Gould and Sarah Podemski.
The comic series has found cult status by portraying aboriginal Canadians as sexy and wealthy in a modern casino setting, rather than telling traditional stories in Canada's Great White North.
