New Sounds: More New Death Grips
"Blackjack" is the second song to surface online from Death Grips' upcoming second release "The Money Store." Whereas "Get Got", which I posted yesterday, seemed to signal that Death Grips were taking a slightly more calm and controlled route this time around, "Blackjack" very much reminds me of the band's older output on "Exmilitary." It's got the same kind of stone- cold, rock- hard aggressive beat that the vast majority of the songs on their debut did, and MC Ride is back to his old formula of yelling his twat off again, only this time his vocals are drenched in fractured and unnerving reverb effects. I'm not such a fan of this one, but fans of "Exmilitary" will almost certainly love it.
