Death Grips’ full set at the 1100 Warehouse a few weeks ago during the SXSW festivities. As you may already know, I was down in front for this, and it was intense as hell.
Check a review of Death Grips’ latest album here:
With loads of strange MIDI sound effects, synths, and a live drum kit, the recently formed Psykers are on their way to producing a twisted, enthralling, and electronic monster of some sort. The handful of video rehearsals they’ve pulled together so far on YouTube are pretty impressive. They’ve even put in the effort to grab a few dancers to perform along with their noisy, textured, and groove-laden jams.
The beginning to these videos is the song “Battleship,” and it’s a for an awesomely foreign flavor to it. However, the third and untitled rehearsal video, I think, will grab the attention of either Death Grips or dubstep fans–maybe both. Lightning bolt? Enjoy!
An insanely long and strange set of visuals from Death Grips here on this out-there video for “Come Up and Get Me,” which comes off the experimental hip hop trio’s latest full-length, NO LOVE DEEP WEB.
Unfortunately, due to complications with their label, the album no longer seems to be available for download on the band’s Third Worlds site.
It’s been another year, y’all! So here are my favorite albums from this past year! It’s been fun doing reviews for you on the regular, and I plan to continue into 2013. Thanks for liking, commenting, watching, and believing.
Here is a YouTube playlist of music from these 50 albums.
With the release of NO LOVE DEEP WEB behind them, experimental hip hop outfit Death Grips is keeping fans busy with some live appearances, and this new set of visuals attached to the non-album track “True Vulture.” Director and animator Galen Pehrson developed a pretty twisted set of sights and sounds in the video above, going completely psychedelic and abstract with it. While it doesn’t exactly portray the deadly, murderous vibe I typically get from Death Grips’ music, it’s actually quite fitting for the track.
