Or Mu, whichever it is. That Afro Finger & Gel album.

maybe it's because I've been in a Depeche Mode rabbit hole for the past week but I tried to listen to Exmilitary and got really sick of it three songs in

I'll try again later when I'm not all synthpopped to death

no samples and all, but the "guitar" noise in i've seen footage sounds so much like kill me tomorrow

i preferred this album to the mixtape, which i could barely get through - bits of it reminded me of gang gang dance in a sideways spirit - but oh god his voice is just so one-note and unlistenable

mu is a really weird point of comparison, but i guess compressed vox+choppy samples

NO TALKING ABOUT PLATO ON TOUR

what i think i mb liked most about ex-military was the sense of having been awake for 50 hrs, or left alone in an abandoned house til you'd gone feral; that semi-conscious, warm, listless, lizard-brain, head-nodding catharsis.

this album feels way more mannered, funnier, but still w/ that aggression: bludgeoning samples, very satisfyingly put together, still a big sense of relief. death grips are a v therapeutic band

that's a really weird PDX venue for him to be playing

Clay, Thursday, 26 April 2012 04:08 (1 year ago) Permalink

ha yeah, i didn't even notice the venue. i'll more likely see them in seattle. and the crocodile isn't ideal, really, but it'll do.

Slims sucks too, tbh, though there are suckier SF venues

Not many though.

they're gonna be on the new Bug album. can't wait for that.

Jamie_ATP, Thursday, 26 April 2012 15:09 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah, i heard about that and am VERY interested in hearing

"in this super-sexy postracial age" (forksclovetofu), Thursday, 26 April 2012 15:18 (1 year ago) Permalink

lol, almost as surprising as the fact that they're gonna be on their own album

Lex did a great review of their album on the Guardian, definitely going to buy it after reading this:

Yeah, that makes me wanna listen to it again

A good point/counterpoint:

bendy, Friday, 27 April 2012 16:50 (1 year ago) Permalink

heavy repeat favorites at the moment in order of preference:

Hustle Bones
The Fever
I've Seen Footage
Get Got
Double Helix
Punk Weight

I don't think Lost Boys and Blackjack are gonna click for me unfortunately but the rest of the album has potential

and not to pick a fight with you whiney but the emphasis on this being rap is weird to me as hip hop is really not how i'm identifying this internally
just feels like fleet footed hardcore to me

the thought of l.a. reid air-drumming to death grips is p amazing

ogmor, Friday, 27 April 2012 18:11 (1 year ago) Permalink

i care about lex's opinion about death grips about as much as i care about tuomas' opinion about cabin in the woods

congratulations (n/a), Friday, 27 April 2012 18:13 (1 year ago) Permalink

mb view it as a tiny bit of karmic payback for clueless rnb reviews by indie critics filled w/ unenlightening reference points that only underline their inability to hear it properly

ogmor, Friday, 27 April 2012 18:19 (1 year ago) Permalink

okay the first 20 seconds of this are already more interesting than what I hear od Exmilitary yesterday

I'M THAT POSTA, AAAAAAAAAH (DJP), Friday, 27 April 2012 18:22 (1 year ago) Permalink

i agree with whiney that the anarchic energy is tamed more than just somewhat but there's a lotta good good in here

lex getting assigned the death grips album is my favorite lex assignment since lex got assigned the klaxons debut

J0rdan S., Friday, 27 April 2012 18:25 (1 year ago) Permalink

it's kind of funny seeing someone who champions Cassie use "one-note" in a pejorative manner

this is kind of hitting me like Shabazz Palaces on PCP, which is a concept that gets better and better the more I think about it

rap is a big part of the dna though. it's a hybrid, not a this or that.

lex's review seems pretty positive to me, y'all are being a little "omg you brought down the avengers' rotten tomatoes score!!" at him

some dude, Friday, 27 April 2012 18:34 (1 year ago) Permalink

I don't understand how can you identify this as "not hip-hop"? I think referencing MC 900 Ft Jesus as a very canny move as this really does slot into that type of weirdo industrial-goth-hop vein that nu-metal/hip-hop hybrids did their damnedest to destroy.

Then again, I've called a whole bunch of bizarre things hip-hop (like "Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors") so maybe that's just one of my default filters.

xp: It is pretty positive for a 2/5 review, I'll give you that.
