New to the Library: “Rill Rill” Sleigh Bells

https://i1.wp.com/static.stereogum.com/uploads/2011/01/sleigh-bells-rill-video1.jpgEver wonder what that chick in A Perfect Circle’s video for “The Outsider” was doing before she qualified to join up with the Bikini Bandits? Imagine no longer; I present to you the video for “Rill Rill.” lalalala

Alexis Krauss’ vocals are reminiscent of Sharon Costanzo of Len (don’t know who the fuck Len is?…remember “Steal My Sunshine”? …yah that one). I just really needed to put that out there. Let’s move on…

This song is extra chilly. It never really -goes- anywhere, it just floats through. And then keeps floating through your mind. Remember that scene from High Fidelity where John Cusack’s character throws on “Dry the Rain” by The Beta Band and everyone just grooves? This could just slide right in it’s place. I’m making no statements here about equality of quality, but it definitely fits that same VIBE. So if you’re looking to add to your chill zone, give this track a whirl.

3.5/5

“The Perfect Remedy” SiR

So chill. Plus it has that 90’s studio guitar thang going on. *sigh* It reminds me a lot of The Weeknd, but without the undertow of apathy. The vocal style reminds me a lot of Sisqo’s ballads. I don’t think this is going to be one of those songs I become addicted to, but it’s a nice addition to the gang.
