shit this is incredible
hate people who pull shit like this. let the artist do their thing so you can do yours (watch).
well, it’s definitely a u2 song
Even more than lazy, the whole thing just seems empty to me. Call it performance art — but then there’s good art and bad art and also there’s really fucking bad art. To me this seems like the latter because there’s absolutely nothing on the line. Michael’s right — all Death Grips actually has to fear is bad press and pissed off fans. There’s no real danger.
And somehow, to me the worst part has to be the toy drum set. Nothing lost by destroying it. They come off as not only trying to be punk (which in itself ain’t punk), but as too conscious, pussy, etc. to actually risk losing something of value in displaying their art.
All in all just a weak move that’ll nonetheless do great things for them in terms of publicity.
Blood on the Leaves
Awesome — they left the album stream up. Not that it isn’t already on every torrent site in existence.
Damn, Applesauce is killer.
Sounds precisely like every xx song ever. It’s killer.
Also — that cover art is awesome, and seems reflective of the two songs released so far: same aesthetic as their debut; just subtly tweaked.
I don’t know. I think it sounds pretty cool. A jarring first, second, third listen, sure, but I never (rarely) feel like AC does jarring for the sake of it. There’s definitely melody here — all you “is it even a song??”-folk gotta check yourselves.
One thing I will say. My first listen was with shitty earbuds and a low-quality Youtube stream. A few hours later, I got to blast the track on my home rig. And it sounds killer. Maybe this is an album whose relentless makes most sense when it warps your speakers. Or live.
In any case, my hopes are high.
