Wow. SNL's musical bookings have really gone down the shit hole. LDR and now this garbage?! Jesus.

"SNL's musical bookings have really gone down the shit hole."

uh, were you alive in the '90s? it was always terrible aside from the few great bookings.

Wow...Lana Del Rey, Bon Iver, Sleigh Bells. Is BV doing the booking for SNL? What's next Ted Leo and Sharon Van Etten?!?!?

Oh no. This is one band that genuinely offends me with their talentless tossed-off tuneless turds

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2012 5:03 PM

You know why this is happening. Cause you idiots let it happen. The director of SNL shows(who also has a hand in booking the musical talent) is Beth McCarty. She used to work at MTV. Starting to get the idea here now. If you don't think she and her staff check out this site, check out Crapfork and see what you morons comment on and read about. Not to mention buy tickets for at the awful Terminal 5. Top that off all the rantings on Lana Del Ray which gained SNL major trending and there you have why this talentless shit band is appearing.

Pat yourselves on the back.

New to the site what are the frohawk comments about?

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2012 6:32 PM

Beth McCarthy has not been the director at SNL for years.

http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/about/
Don Roy King is currently the director.

This can all be found on google in .000583 seconds.
DIIIIIICK

The Producers get together months in advance to discuss this.
Some of the writers give input on who to have host and perform.
When the little known indie rock bands pop up, it gets me thinking. " this seems like the guys from the lonely island have some input!"

you

This season's assortment of music that no one outside of the "blogosphere" has ever heard of must be helping NBC's 4th place ratings.

Really, are they even trying to attract viewers anymore?

Their music sounds like a bloody vaginal belch...

Awesome to see a member of the band on BrooklynVegan I'm not a fan but it's still pretty cool!

Posted by Hank | February 8, 2012 10:30 PM

Like I said, I don't give a fuck what you little twats think about it. T5 is gonna blow the roof off and I'm gonna boggie on down with some sweet young thangs with fake MJ jerseys.

Sleigh Bells is the balls. Go listen to your Panda Fuckbear CD you twats.

If she wasnt attractive no one would pay attention to this act. Yes obvious to most but needs repeating.

Xeno & Oaklander will be on Letterman in March.

Posted by Anonymous | February 9, 2012 2:32 AM

6:35 is obviously someone who works for SNL. I am gonna go out on a limb and guess either Samberg, Jorma or Akiva

YOU
ARE
TOOLS

(oh and not all guests both musical and hosts are made months in advance) Samberg lobbied and got Arcade Fire on there a few weeks or a month after he saw them play at Judson Church.

You stupid fucking hipsters. Most indie bands don't stand a chance because after more than a handful of you assholes hear about them, then they're not legit (new) anymore. You destroy your own scene. You're worse than pop fans. Fucking idiots.

Wow! I have never seen so many self-loathing and most likely talentless cunts as I see here leaving these comments. Not to mention a bunch of cunts with no taste. Try actually going to the show and letting yourself have some fun. Remember folks, it's ok to like bands that others have heard of. Keep it pretentious, Brooklyn.

Posted by CV | February 13, 2012 9:20 PM

Fuck all this hateing. Alexis Krauss is fucking gorgeous, this band is fucking killer and you pussy ass hipsters are terribly fucking annoying.

that was eardrum piercingly awful!

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2012 12:12 AM

Sleigh Bells has never been an "indie" band. They were connected pop from the very beginning. Pitchfork was fluffing them before they even played a show.
Its no wonder that yet another hype without substance band plays SNL and falls flat on their face. That was just a mind-numblingly terrible performance.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2012 12:31 AM

this band is just dumb.. anyway you slice it

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2012 12:33 AM

I thought I was gonna slit my wrists hearing that garbage sleigh that music. Singer can't sing, guitar players are so bad any kid with a months worth of lessons would kick their asses.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2012 4:04 AM

Shitty drum machine, no low end, two guitarists with the weakest tone imaginable, flat, tuneless and/or out-of-tune.

People who say that bands always sound like shit on SNL are like Holocaust deniers.

Go suck your mother's dick. Sleigh Bells were fine. I guess your rarefied tastes preclude you from just enjoying yourself. It's a pity; there's a beautiful day outside.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2012 7:47 AM

Is SNL getting payolla for these suck ass bands. Or they trying something new here. Maybe they think people will watch just to see how bad a band or singer can be and still perform on TV. Either way, Sleigh smells was the worst one yet.

Posted by Thz217 | February 19, 2012 12:28 PM

1228 LDR was worse. and please suggest who else should play SNL if you're gonna aimlessly rag on shit

Were they playing their "singles"?
Because the songs had no hooks, no nothing.
B-side sounding bullshit.
Really bad. And what awful guitar tone!

just terrible. what happened to the songs?

If you don't like them, son't listen.
If you know that you don't like them and you still listen, you are a fuckwad who deserves the be beaten and not listened to.
And if you pull that "well, I never heard them before" bullshit you are a lying fuckwad who deserves the be beaten and not listened to.

I actually like Sleigh Bells, but they were terrible last night.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2012 3:51 PM

what if i really love their first record and think this is devoid of any hooks or melodies?

it's practically unlistenable. where's the joy in any of these songs? they're miserable and forgettable.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2012 3:58 PM

@3:58 Exactly. Their debut was amazing, this is depressing.

I haven't downloaded a pirated copy of the new album yet, but that first album was dope and exciting. Those clips from last night just seemed tame.

They were fkucking awful. I have no problem w/ SNL branching out (Bon Iver is NOT branching out & they were really good). LDR is turdmusik.

Chick can't sing. Jackson guitars used as satire. You should be able to play before you pick that shti up.

Now, if they'd booked Otto v. Schirak (sp?!) I wouldn't mind.
