Noise-pop duo Sleigh Bells have announced their second album, Reign of Terror, with a new video in which the two strut around in a typically sexy, menacing manner to an extended riff from one of their new tunes. There is no word yet as to when the record will hit shops, but it will presumably be out within the next few months.

"Emotionally, it's a really heavy record," guitarist and producer Derek E. Miller told Rolling Stone about the new set back in May. "Even the early demos that we have now, a lot of the stuff that Derek has recorded, sounds more immense to me," said singer Alexis Krauss. "It sounds really huge, so there's going to still be tons of volume."

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
