O.G. boingboing-core South African rap duo Die Antwoord — 2010’s “hahahaha jk” archetypes, for those with short ‘net memories — are coming back with a new release, proving at the very least they are serious enough of a rap & rave outfit to proffer a new release. SPIN recaps a listening session of Ninja and Yo-Landi’s forthcoming full-length, Tensions, pegging it “freakier” and “more absurd” and “smart” and “culturally relevant.” Earlier this year, the band lost its DJ, Leon Botha, at the age of 26. The album title begins to speak for itself, doesn’t it.
Anyway, if you can’t wait until next year to see Die Antwoord, just get down to Occupy Wall St. Easy.
