Bonnaroo 2013: Saturday

More than any other day, Saturday at Bonnaroo was filled with things that could only really happen at the Farm, among them, Björk’s jellyfish facemask thing, R. Kelly entering on a boom crane, a 5k at 9 in the morning (in 80 degree heat), and a moment where Jim James, R. Kelly, Billy Idol, andRead more...

Sasquatch 2013 Wraps Up: Alt-J, Cody ChestnuTT, Twin Shadow & Death Grips

by Tara Kelly Kearns I felt the slow bass beats pounding through my body as I walked over to the Bigfoot stage for experimental hip hop group Death Grips.

Sasquatch 2013, Day 4: Death Grips

For being as strange as they are - and in fact they looked possessed on stage this weekend - I have an awfully easy time listening to Sacramento experimental rap group Death Grips.

M.I.A.‘s much-anticipated album Matangi has been rejected by Interscope for being “too positive”. The album was supposed to be released last month, but now with apparently some “darkening up” needed, the release is expected around April 15th, in time for the Tamil New Year.

Live Review: Death Grips @ Crocodile 11/29/12

As can be expected, the Death Grips show Thursday night was an intense but totally awesome blur of chaos, noise, and heady, tripped out tunes. This is the first time Death Grips have been to Seattle since releasing both of their 2012 records, The Money Store and the eyebrow-raising NO LOVE DEEP WEB. Drawing heavilyRead more...

KEXP Suggests: Death Grips at Crocodile tonight!

Death Grips, one of 2012′s most startling new acts, has quickly become of the most well respected. All of it is deserved, though. Their sound is entirely unique to them - a mixture of spastic experimental electronic and screaming rap lines that has disoriented and blown the minds of quite a few people.

“We bloody won the Mercury!!!” Alt-J announced on Facebook yesterday. The band’s debut album, An Awesome Wave, had won the Barclaycard Mercury Prize, an award for the best UK album of the year.

A somewhat serious song calls for a somewhat serious music video, somewhat being the key word when it comes to Cincinnati indie-hop band WHY?. Taking place in what I can only imagine is a room straight out of his childhood, lead singer Yoni Wolf rambles on with philosophical thoughts and reflections. With no parades orRead more...
