Also have Death Grips been talked about in here? I have been listening to that album again recently and i think there is definitely something there. Initially i almost palmed them off as a cynical hipster take on some sort of mildly subversive (although i wasn't really able to tell exactly what they were trying to subvert) Spearhead vibe, with some rude sex references and naughty drug talk about smoking joints and whatnot. But i have been quite digging the raw, caustic energy of it in the same way i enjoy listening to some of my favourite no wave records, or other noisy post punk bits.

Related side note: The guy who came to fix my window the other week, is friends with Syd Barrett's son and had jammed with him. He also sent me pics from some Residents gigs he went to. Fucking cool guy, his daughter is at uni in Aberdeen too, i would hazard a guess that she is probably pretty cool as well.

Despite always thinking Hodgy Beats was wack as fuck, this is really good at first listen. Party cos of the producers involved but even so, his rhyming is about 1000% improved from the older OF stuff, also no shitty shock value rape lyrics so automatic bonus points.

Yeah man, I was listening to this last night, was completely apprehensive, but he sounds totally grown up.
