“Irreplaceable” (Beyonce Cover)

    If you’ve ever had the (weird) desire to hear Sleigh Bells absent their penchant for true shred guitars and riot rhythms, then the band’s latest track is hear to appease that (truly bizarre) desire. When the band recorded a Maida Vale session for BBC1, they covered Beyonce’s empowered woman breakup track “Irreplaceable” with little more than a couple acoustic guitar chords and Alexis Krauss’ going real breathy on the vocals. It’s a (very goddamn) strange thing to hear from Sleigh Bells, so enjoy the novelty of their take on “Irreplaceable” below. [CoS]
