Death Grips – The Money Store: “Gaga Can’t Handle This Shit”
Wow. The intertwining of rough and ready rap/hip hop vocals, dark edgy beats and random sounds in Death Grips’ songs create this insanely intense desire for even more of their experimental chaos.
The trio (Zach Hill, Stefan Burnett, and Andy Morin) hail from Sacramento (woah, they even have a wikipedia page) and released their first album, The Money Store, April 24th with Epic Records. (Psst… the whole damn thing is available on Spotify).
While absorbing the magnitude of Death Grips’ sweet beats in my cubicle via Spotify, my coworkers were also eyeing the titles of The Money Store’s songs flood their Facebook feeds: “Fuck That,” “Bitch Please,” “Hustle Bones” – I undoubtedly scarred and/or scared them, but Oh GOD (!) is it worth it.
Give this entire album a thorough listen, or at least join in my addiction for songs like “Hacker” and “I’ve Seen Footage.”
Also, if you can resist the urge to roll your eyes and tell me to f**k off for referring you to Pitchfork, they have an interesting interview with the “riotous, shit-starting Death Grips.”
