Jeez, I didn’t spot this at the time, but it turns out Death Grips (who I was enjoying just this evening) announced earlier this month they were calling it quits (via a napkin), only a few weeks after releasing their latest album. The second half of their two-part release is still expected later this year.
Apparently they’ve been a bit on and off in the past, or perhaps this is all a ruse, but news reports seem to think it’s more final. Who knows.
If that really is *it*, will be interesting to see what comes next from those guys, or who will step in to fill void left by the angry, shouty, seemingly now self-obsessed, great band that they were/are.
Either way, thanks for all the music.
