Death Grips @ Larimer Lounge, 2012-11-23

I think I heard about these guys on Vice magazine back in 2011 or so, maybe somewhere else, doesn't really matter.  I saw a link to a video of a song on their release Exmilitary.  I was immediately struck by dense dark production.  It reminded me of the Bomb Squad production on old Public Enemy records.

MC Ride isn't as wordy as Chuck D though.  It's more of a violent, dark, stream of consciousness.  I love weird noisy stuff so I was hooked right away.  Zach Hill formerly of Hella plays drums on the albums and live and that live percussion is what really made the show for me.  Check it out.
