About a week ago, experimental hip hop band Death Grips released a new track off their forthcoming album “The Money Store”, which will be the first of two albums to be released this year. They also announced that they are now officially signed to Epic Records. As always in these, dare I say ‘success stories’, some people don’t like it. Some say that Death Grips sold out. But I say “Get Got” is a tasty, tasty track that leaves me eagerly waiting in anticipation for what Stefan Burnett, Andy Morin and the incredibly exciting Zach Hill plan to release over the course of this year (under the guise of their new all powerful leaders of course). Check it out.
The weekend has landed. All that exists now is clubs, drugs, pubs and parties. I’ve got 48 hours off from the world, man. I’m gonna blow steam out my head like a screaming kettle, I’m gonna talk cod shit to strangers all night, I’m gonna lose the plot on the dancefloor. The free radicals inside me are freakin’, man! Tonight I’m Jip Travolta, I’m Peter Popper, I’m going to never-never land with my chosen family, man. We’re gonna get more spaced out than Neil Armstrong ever did, anything could happen tonight, you know? This could be the best night of my life. I’ve got 73 quid in my back burner – I’m gonna wax the lot, man! The Milky Bars are on me! Yeah!
Burial’s most recent Ep ‘Kindred’ reminds us all of how immersive electronic music can be. As the genre has recently developed a scene mostly concerned about making the loudest, fist pumping friendly anthems or the hardest hitting, stomach turning, wobbly drops that audio frequencies allow, it’s good to know that electronic music can still be tasty. And it is tasty. Real tasty.
