Death Grips is going to be ridiculous. Zach Hill is on the drums, all while playing ridiculous beats that sound nothing like average "hip-hop".
So far they've been on discussion as to whether people are considering this hip-hop or not. I think they're definitely one that will at least be interesting to watch no matter what, but I think they'll be pretty sick.

Spread Eagle Cross the Block has to be an new anthem for me. Death Grips is going to get a lot of hate for obvious reasons, but I think they're worth listening to. Plus, this has to be the coolest sample I've ever heard in a song, makes me want a royale with cheese.

Just downloaded Ex-Military... Shit is beyond good. So excited for this set. Really hoping that they somehow get the low tier act treatment of closing out a stage, even though I would be crushed if they conflicted with Amon. This just seems like a set that would kill at night and be far too short during the day.

Go kill yourself. Seriously. I would say he is possibly the one of the most expressive drummers alive today.

I'm an old guy and a bit jaded because I've been seeing live music since 1970. With so many acts today so heavily produced, I really question the value of many live shows. Listening to what Zach Hill does with Death Grips makes me genuinely excited about seeing them live.

02-29-2012, 05:01 PM
So stoked these guys are repping where i am from!:) Sacramento!!!

Chapman
03-02-2012, 07:37 AM
What Zach Hill does in Death Grips is just a pinch of what he can actually do live. Ive seen him do a whole live set on his own and he lead Boredoms play a Boadrum 9 set at ATP! If you like drums and not familiar with it check out the concept of Boadrum...Boadrum 77 was the first to be done I believe!

I knew nothing of Death Grips, but my wife had heard a song she liked, so we went to their set yesterday. All I can say is wow! So intense! Between the mosh pit, crowd surfers and giant inflatable pills (?) we almost died, but it was fun... haha

i was disappointed to not see it in various places around the field the rest of the weekend like the inflatable boat from girl talk's 2009 set. i saw that thing everywhere from the sahara to the entrance to the main stage

Vic Viper
04-16-2012, 05:58 PM
they took the giant pills backstage at the end, at some point once they had bounced their way back up font ride didn't kick them back into the crowd. band's all indie and shit yo, they can't afford to loose giant props yet.

btw the show was unfuckingbelievable.

philabuster
04-17-2012, 04:22 AM
This is something the week 2 crowd needs to note. Coachella is loaded with lots of pleasant entertainment that does not need to be seen live. Death Grips must be seen to be believed. Possibly the most essential show to catch.

baldomero
04-17-2012, 06:28 AM
These guys went OFF! The drummer is insane and the message is clear---we all get fucking sick of the status quo and need to get this poetic aggression out of our systems. Truly, the lyrics are poetic! They rocked it!!! A must see if you're going next weekend

lt.roast.a.botch
04-17-2012, 06:41 AM

04-17-2012, 08:06 AM
