Amoeba Review

11/16/2013

With all the hubbub that surrounded Death Grips’ third album—how about that original cover art?—it was easy to overlook the actual music. The album itself has somewhat been eclipsed by the band’s early leaking of the album and Epic’s subsequent dropping of the band, but now given a proper physical release on Harvest Records, No Love Deep Web proves itself as essential listening, nonetheless. Death Grips are one of the most exciting bands on the planet right now, both for their music and attitude, as shown by one listen to album opener “Come Up and Get Me.” Zach Hill (who’s also played with Hella and Marnie Stern) and Andy “Flatlander” Morin deliver digital sound stabs while Stefan “MC Ride” Burnett performs like a desperate man, sing/screaming “fuck the world, fuck this body” like it’s the apocalypse. “No Love” uses a singular drum knocking like an unwanted visitor, an atonal synth riff and mechanical noise to create plenty of uneasy atmosphere; Burnett, as if letting the song simmer, eases into it, delivering a more minimal performance that’s all the more effective for the eerie space that creeps in between his tirades. The innocuous sounding title “World of Dogs” reveals pelting beats and the repeated lyric “it’s all suicide,” while “Deep Web” turns up the aggression to its maximum, as Burnett cries “don’t make me take my face off” among digital gunshots and bombshells of sound. No Love Deep Web doesn’t share the sonic diversity of its predecessor, the superior The Money Store, and it doesn’t have anything approaching a single. Yet it’s the clearest, most uncompromising statement from a band who has built their name on never standing down. As the band leaks yet another album online, here’s hoping they never change.
