DOWNLOAD: Death Grips - Ex Military (ZIP file)
Nguzunguzu recently kicked off their tour with Gang Gang Dance and Total Freedom, though as mentioned, neither Nguzunguzu nor Total Freedom will be on Gang Gang Dance's NYC show when they headline a Rocks Off Concert Cruise on July 21. Nguzunguzu will instead play their own NYC show that day (7/21) at Santos Party House. The bill also includes Death Grips, Traxman, Azizaman, and Thomass.
Experimental rapper Death Grips recently released the Exmilitary mixtape, which you can stream (below) and download (above). The mixtape combines lo-fi and glitch hop, but unlike other indie-leaning hip hop, his delivery has more in common with hardcore hip hop. Death Grips also plays one of Jelly's RockBeach shows at the Aviator Sports Complex on July 24 with Bass Drum of Death,
MNDR, The Miracles Club, and Night Manager. More dates and three Death Grips music videos are below.
Bass Drum of Death also play two shows with WU LYF on July 22 at Mercury Lounge and July 23 at Knitting Factory. Both shows are sold out.
You can also catch Azizaman at Santos tonight with Omar Souleyman and Janka Nabay.
