Sleigh Bells Guitarist Drops PTA A Mixtape

File this under: highly amusing. Our buddy, Playlister Drew Taylor just dropped us a link to a brief PTA mention on Pitchfork by Sleigh Bells guitarist Derek Miller.
The guitarist was in Paris prepping for a show when we chatted with him at the beginning of March, a couple weeks after Sleigh Bells' divisive performance on "Saturday Night Live". Talking about that appearance, which was met with some online criticism, he was blunt. "On television, you have to compromise all your production values and it's impossible to sound good," he said. But the gig wasn't a total wash-- Miller got to meet "SNL" host Maya Rudolph's significant other, filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson, and even slip him a personalized mixtape. "That's just my way of saying hi to someone," says Miller. What was on the tape? "Just a bunch of crazy shit I've been listening to: a bunch of Lil B, some Burzum," he says, laughing. "I haven't heard back from him about it yet."
We'll have to wait and see if any of those tracks end up in 'The Master.' We've helpfully included a lil' Lil B below.

Sleigh Bells new album "Reign of Terror" is out now (and features the excellent single "Crush"). In the meantime, what's on your PTA mix?

Stay tuned to Twitter and Facebook for the latest news and updates.

  2. I'm not sure what I would put on a mix for PTA but I probably wouldn't put a gangster rapper called Lil' B on there.
