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.

Death Grips // The Fever (Aye Aye)

Death Grips released one of our favourite albums of 2011 in ExMilitary. Their sophomore effort comes out on Epic next month, and we feel like a 7-year-old counting down the days until Christmas.

The Sacramento outfit have made a fourth track available for download for free on their Soundcloud. ‘The Fever (Aye Aye)’ is the best thing we’ve heard in a damn while. It manages to be one of their most instrumentally complex tracks while somehow outdoing the intensity of a lot of their previous output. Mind = blown. If you are averse to unhinged genre-bending chaos, avert your eyes and ears. If not, you’re in for a treat. Download it here, or watch the video below.

The Money Store is out on April 23rd.

Death Grips // ‘Lost Boys’

Image

Sacramento’s finest apocalyptic hip-hop act – hell, the finest anywhere – Death Grips, have given away yet another free track in the lead-up to their Epic Records debut, The Money Store. Typically brutal, ‘Lost Boys’ is our favourite cut so far, bristling with the raw aggression that makes Death Grips one of the most vital groups around.

Don’t take it from us – as MC Ride himself says: “Beware, you have been warned, the barrel’s still warm.”

The Money Store will be the first of two the band release this year; No Love is slated for release this Autumn.

Listen to New Death Grips

Death Grips released one of last years finest albums with Exmilitary and now the incredibly intense outfit are set to release two separate albums in 2012. At the very least will have a suitable soundtrack for when the Mayan apolocaypse finally kicks off.

The first album is titled The Money Store and is due for release on the 23rd of April on Epic Records.The second album titled No Love is due some time in the autumn. You can watch the video to their new track ‘Get Got’ off of Money Store below. It’s ferocious and intense and we’d bet a fair bit of money that your mum probably wouldn’t like it.

‘Get Got’ follows ‘Black Jack’ which was uploaded with a video earlier this month:
