Death Grips: “@deathgripz”

Sacramento’s Death Grips continue to ride their noisy wave of success with, believe it or not, a throwaway track named after their twitter account. “@deathgrips” was originally recorded during the Money Store sessions but did not make the final cut. It ultimately ended up in the 2012 Adult Swim Singles Series. Blending elements of their neo new-wave sound with Stefan Burnett’s unintelligble yet dark and captivating lyrics, “@deathgripz” is a fun time in the same vein as “I’ve Seen Footage.” Picture a drunk RZA gettin’ down to M.I.A. and Santogold.
