Death Grips Break Up

Few acts in popular music have the stability of Death Grips, so it’s a great shock to see the band have called it quits! Or they’re fucking with us! Or their shit got hacked! Either way, the band just posted a note on their Facebook page announcing their demise, along with a photo of that… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

There was a pretty significant imbalance in this week’s 5 Best Songs. The bottom 3/5 of this list was the subject of significant debate, with lots of candidates receiving low percentages of overall votes — all worthy, mind you, but none achieving consensus; there were numerous alternate candidates that could have appeared in those spot… More »

The Bug – “Fuck A Bitch” (Feat. Death Grips) & “Save Me” (Feat. Gonjasufi)

Kevin “Kmart” Martin has been making music as the Bug for years, but his last proper album was released six years ago. That album was London Zoo, an earth-shaking amplification of grime, dubstep, and jungle, featuring a stacked roster of guest vocalists that hadn’t been rivaled on an electronic album until Disclosure dropped Settle last… More »

Björk Confirms Death Grips Collab: “I Am Thrilled To Be Their ‘Found Object'”

You’ll forgive us if we don’t automatically take Death Grips at their word. Late last night, the group released niggas on the moon, the first half of their forthcoming double album the powers that b., as a free download. In characteristic Death Grips fashion, this whole thing was a surprise, and not everyone believed them… More »

Today, we get the official announcement — dates,… More »

Death Grips – “No Love” Video

After a wild 2013 that ended on a genuine high note, Death Grips have carried some positive momentum into the new year, promising a new album and making available for free download the stems from their last two albums, so that remixers could readily have their way with those songs. Now, out of nowhere i… More »

Death Grips Share Instrumental And Vocal Tracks From Their Last Two Albums

Death Grips had an insane year in 2013 (which you can read about in our Year In Death Grips feature), one that gave the impression they’d finally worked through a lot of their problems with label, culminating in the powerful new release and Mixtape Of The Week, Government Plates. Looks like 2014 is continuing to… More »

Death Grips At Work On New Album

Zach Hill has announced on Facebook that Death Grips will begin work on the followup to last year’s Government Plates. That album seemed transitional and a loose idea of something more to come, so it seems possible the next release will be the true Third Worlds debut that they spoke about in the past. After… More »

The Year In Death Grips

Even with all of the dick pics and album leaks and label disputes of 2012, Death Grips never had a more tumultuous year than they did in 2013. It was the year they reached new heights of exposure, after the climb in 2012, and found it not to their liking. This was a year of… More »

Stereogum’s 50 Favorite Songs Of 2013

Determining the year’s best albums is, admittedly, a subjective pursuit. But even more than an albums roundup, a list of songs is an intensely personal way to sum up a year in music. It is a process of appreciating the trees in a forest so sprawling it can never be mapped out entirely, celebrating the… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Death Grips Government Plates

Last week Death Grips dropped a new album out of nowhere — a really good new album — but considering it’s a spontaneous digital, free release, we decided it fit better in MOTW than AOTW (plus we wanted to give Blood Orange’s awesome new album some love). But let’s just get straight into it, because… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

The Week That Was had already delivered to us a pretty impressive number of worthy songs for inclusion in this list, and then, outta nowhere, Death Grips dropped a whole new album, giving us 10 more songs to sort through for this feature (Government Plates goes 11 tracks deep, but the previously released “Birds” wa… More »

Death Grips’ NO LOVE DEEP WEB Gets Vinyl Release

Would you guys have imagined that more than half-way through 2013, last year’s NO LOVE DEEP WEB fracasperformance art oddities, aside — would resurface? Yesterday, there were reports on a Reddit thread that vinyl copies of the album, which the band famously released online for free against the behest of their label, were… More »

Hear British TV Choirmaster Cover Death Grips

Gareth Malone, a British choirmaster and star of the reality TV series The Choir, will release Voices this year and it includes an ecclesiastical cover of Death Grips’ “Guillotine.” This is not a test, people. We are not being trolled, this is totally real, and Malone has unveiled the cascading cover as a preview of… More »

Death Grips – “Birds”

People get mad about Death Grips because they’re frankly pretty unreliable and disrespectful, but people talk about Death Grips because they make fucking awesome music. (I’d argue that No Death Grips = No Yeezus, tbh.) The band is reportedly working on a 2014 LP for their own (major label-affiliated) Thirdworlds imprint, but this morning, out… More »

Deconstructing: Death Grips’ No-Show Live Show And What We Expect From Concerts

When Death Grips “chose not to arrive in Chicago” for their scheduled set at Lollapalooza 2013, it led to outrage in comments sections, on Twitter, and in real life: Patrons at Chicago’s Bottom Lounge got violent when it became clear the band wouldn’t be performing at the official Lollapalooza after-show party for which they had… More »
