  • The censored version of Death Grips' new album artwork.
Well, well: Anarchic Sacramento rap outfit Death Grips posted all of its new album, NO LOVE DEEP WEB, online for free this morning -- allegedly before reps for its label, Epic, even had a chance to hear it. Several hours later, the label apparently responded by shutting down the band's website, Pitchfork reports. Which -- along with this NSFW-and-most-definitely-not-safe-for-marketing-anywhere new cover artwork, really kind of makes us wonder what a group like Death Grips is doing on a major label, anyway. For now, though, the band's is not up and running. We have inquiries out to band and label representatives now, and will update this post if we get any info. The new music is still up on Soundcloud, and there are download links all over the band's Facebook and Twitter: -- @iPORT

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
