Death Grips have long impressed us with their experimental brand of down-tempo hip hop which more often than not incorporates elements of dub, electronica and even punk. Following last month’s Lollapalooza/after party no-show which they later claimed was intended the whole time, the Californian three-piece today released new single ‘Birds’ and we must say we’re quite taken with it. Birds is built around an off kilter sound which slowly burns as glitched out samples and raw, live sounding drums keep somewhat of a steady flow even if only intermittently. The band are said to be working toward a new LP set for release in 2014, but only time can tell.. Happy Monday, y’all.
