Amongst the bottomless riffs of Sleigh Bells' Treats, "Rill Rill," with its sampling of Funkadelic's "Can You Get to That"'s meandering guitar, always struck as their most sweet song. This video for "Rill Rill," has got a lot more piss and vinegar. Or at least blood. No spoiler: guitarist Derek Miller has got a pretty festering wound. We'll leave the rest of the John Watts-directed video's plot to you, but coupled with the bat-wielding in their "Infinity Guitars" we're seeing a trend of nihilistic destruction. Hope Beyonce is prepped for their stylish violence. Watch the video above or see it higher def here.
