Nutshell review: Sleigh Bells - Kid Kruschev

Tue, 20 Feb 2018

Sleigh Bells quickly went from one of the most exciting bands around to the biggest disappointment. Jessica Rabbit was abysmally boring (I can’t even get through it in one sitting), and Kid Kruschev (2017) follows suit with another collection of tracks that lack cadence, playful arrangements, or poetically juvenile lyrics. At this point in their careers, Sleigh Bells should be adding two live drummers to the lineup, not reducing the beats to a drum machine manned by an unimaginative fifth grader.
