Death Grips

11/08/13 Time TBA

ON APRIL 26TH, A MYSTERIOUS NEW EXTREME HIP-HOP GROUP CALLED DEATH GRIPS RELEASED AN ONLINE MIXTAPE, EXMILITARY, THAT HAS GARNERED MUCH ATTENTION FROM INDEPENDENT MUSIC CRITICS. THE GROUP CONSISTS OF SACRAMENTO-BASED HELLA DRUMMER ZACH HILL, AN MC WHOSE IDENTITY HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED AND AT LEAST ONE MORE MEMBER. THE TRACKS ON EXMILITARY EVOKE A VISCERAL DESPERATION FAR MORE ENGROSSING THAN ANY CONTEMPORARY GANGSTA RAP, FEATURING ANIMALISTIC LYRICISM AND BEATS WITH SUBTLY OFF-PUTTING TIME SIGNATURES.PERHAPS THIS IS THE FUTURE OF HIP-HOP- AN UNADULTERED, INFECTIOUS EXPRESSION OF UNREST THAT CUTS TO THE BONE AND LEAVES YOU SCRAPING FOR MORE. JUST AS UNORTHODOX AS THE GROUP’S STYLE IS THEIR METHOD OF PROMOTION. THE GROUP RELEASED THE THIRTEEN TRACKS OF THEIR MIXTAPE ONLINE AND SIMPLY LET THEM MAKE THEIR ROUNDS ON VARIOUS MUSIC BLOGS WITHOUT RELEASING ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THE MEMBERS. THE GROUP IS SAID TO BE WORKING ON A FULL-LENGTH ALBUM, FLATLANDER, WHOSE RELEASE DATE IS AS OF YET UNANNOUNCED.
