All Aboard the S.S. Coachella- Lineup Announced

Yes, you read it correctly, there will in fact be a Coachella at Sea. Two cruises are scheduled to sail across the ocean with a lineup of bands/DJs to accompany this voyage, one to The Bahamas (3 days), and the other to Jamaica (4 days). With an eclectic lineup that all will enjoy, this is due to be one of the most epic concerts known to man. Some people say “cruises aren’t for them”, or “cruises are so boring”, well if you can afford this party of all parties, I would reconsider these assumptions, because this could and may be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Yes, I believe (unless this becomes an annual event), that seeing such an amazing concert out on the open ocean would be a once in a lifetime experience. They’ve got Girl Talk, Sleigh Bells, Hot Chip, and James Murphy, as well as El-P and Killer Mike, who just released R.A.P. Music (Killer Mike‘s new album, produced by El-P), one of the best albums this year… so you know you’re in for a treat once the S.S. Coachella sets sail… and my guess, but since you will be on a boat, you’re bound to see some of the artists in person, because they don’t have anywhere else to go before and after they play their set… just sayin’. See above poster for more artists that will be on the ship, and keep an eye out for more surprises to be added to the lineup in the near future.
S.S. Coachella Dates:
December 16-19
December 19-23

Alexis Krauss is so freaking amazing live in concert, and if you can’t see them perform, this is a great up and close version of what Sleigh Bells is like up on stage. Check out “Demons”, I have a feeling you’ll be blasting it this weekend if you do…

New album release- “Reign of Terror”, by Sleigh Bells

Songwriter Derek E. Miller, formerly the guitarist for the post-hardcore band Poison The Well, and Alexis Krauss, formerly a member of the teen-pop group RubyBlue, have come together to form Sleigh Bells. The two first came out with their LP Treats in 2010. Today, they have released their second record, Reign of Terror, which is a great combination of a female punk/pop-rock singer with eclectic electronics, screaming guitars, and bouncy beats. Stereogum says that “The real best album to come out today is Sleigh Bells’ Reign Of Terror“.

…and their official music video for “Comeback Kid”
