Inspired by this article about good new punk rock bands I decided to write my own, about hip hop I am listening to at the moment. That, and I’m feeling particularly derivative today. This list is neither a “classic hip hop” nor a “new hip” list; it’s just a list of hip hop that I’ve been listening to a lot.
Regular readers of this site will have read about Sacramento group Deathgrips before. Deathgrips are a darkly experimental hip hop group that utilise abrasive vocals and an over driven recording sound to create the sonic equivalent of skunk psychosis. Those of you who haven’t already should download the Ex military mix tape from the bands website. Even more excitingly Deathgrips latest album is The Money store is dropping April 24th.
