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 of absolutely nowhere, they dropped a new track: a harrowing, PCP-laced, dub-punk bad trip called “Birds.” It’s spare, brutal, ugly, anti-melodic, and of course pretty great. “Fuck this bird, bitch, drink this bleach.” I said GODDAMN.
