Death Grips // ‘I’ve Seen Footage’

Well, this is a surprise: Death Grips release something vaguely accessible (!). Don’t worry, the trademark vitriol is still there in buckets, but the new track from the Sacramento doom mongers is their most accessible work yet. ‘I’ve Seen Footage’ reimagines the jumping rhythms of old school mainstays like Run DMC and Salt ‘n’ Pepa. Really.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Death Grips track without a healthy dose of paranoia. As you might guess from the title, ‘I’ve Seen Footage’ deals with police surveillance, something that has pervaded their recent output and seems like as good an indication as any of the lyrical content of The Money Store.

    man! the death grips are on point right now. best new track on pitchfork? hell yeah! i just pre-ordered my copy of the new album… you should do the same haha. No but seriously, this group is going to resurrect hyped up rap music! the kind of tracks that you blast in your headphones just before going out to the clubs… or going out onto the field. either way, april 24th is going to be a good day!
