They fucking did it again. They dropped another Fat Man without warning anyone!

So...it looks like this is what we get from Death Grips in 2019. Needless to say, the entire 30-minute timeslot they occupied on NTS Radio was a chaotic musical shitshow! Power electronics at its finest!

Death Grips showcases their most glitchy, chaotic and completely random release, I guess? I don't know, rating this musical shitpost is like trying to get a goldfish to climb a tree. There's practically no ... read more

This is just a mess. It's loud, chaotic, and all over the place just for the sake of it. There's no rhyme or reason to this absolute mess of an EP, it's just a load of nonsense.

Which is exactly why I love it so much.

This is Death Grips being Death Grips at its Death Gripsiest. This thing is easily their glitchiest, most random, most chaotic and absolutely batshit insane release I've heard so far, or even to date. It's pure chaos for 30 minutes straight. The drumming is OUT OF THIS WORLD, ... read more
