Sleigh Bells take a break from their current tour opening for Weezer and Pixies with their own headlining show tonight in Santa Ana. The Brooklyn duo have always found a strangely compelling beauty in the way singer Alexis Krauss’ winsome melodies are crushed by the wall of noise cranked up by guitarist Derek Miller. “My past is littered with the bones of men who were fools enough to sleep on me/A missionary in a sea of mercenaries,” Krauss chants against Miller’s throttling backdrop of boxy riffs and fuzzed-out distortion on “Favorite Transgressions,” from Sleigh Bells’ recent EP Kid Kruschev. “I used to drink gasoline in the morning,” Krauss brags on “Blue Trash Mattress Fire,” but her melodramatic lyrics are amplified by Miller’s remorselessly heavy accents, which segue from crushing chords into artier passages.
