so excited to see this project at ATP, I've been waiting to see Zach Hill again since Hella set at ATP curated by TMV in 2005.

Very interesting Pitchfork interview with Zach Hill regarding The Money Store.

Our processes are crazy. We'll set out to achieve a certain sound, but set it up to fail, and then rebuild the track out of that failure. For example, in the song "System Blower", there's this part that goes, "WA-WA-WA-WA-WA," and the drop is the sound of Venus Williams screaming when she hits a tennis ball. It was in a video we found on YouTube. The only things we sampled were things like that, things from everyday life. We all carry around camcorders; we'll record sounds with digital cameras and use those sounds on our records, with a real disregard for sound quality.

That interview gets me excited for their next record.

We understand the new album, No Love, is already in the works?


Yeah, we're really excited about it. It's about seventy percent complete, and we're going to finish it in July. We'll work on it constantly until then, but we're about to go on a pretty large tour... but it's very exciting. I think it transcends even the place we are right now, musically, just as hopefully The Money Store did with Exmilitary. It's kind of weird, because it comes across, in my opinion, as the kind of culmination of those two albums. It's refined. The most powerful aspects of the two records we've made so far combined as one, but going even further. There's a clearer emotional core, and a greater clarity to it in general, which I don't think we've gotten to yet, as a group. Which is very exciting.

The main thing I can really talk about now is the heaviness of it. I don't necessarily mean even just volume or noise, or things like that, because the most quiet thing in the world, musically, can be one of the heaviest. I mean more dynamically. It's so difficult to describe music – it's very beat-oriented, but it has a strong emotional core. There's a certain tone to it that I can't really describe, and it dominates all the material in this really great way, because it's still got that diversity of the other records, but it's dynamic. You'll hear some of the loudest things we've ever done, but also some of the quietest things. It's definitely not a departure from either of the two records that have gone before, rather it's a natural culmination. If you think of the records as a trinity, this one will be the point on the top of the triangle. It's powerful music. We're excited about it. It's dangerous.

There's a melodic aspect to all the things that are in the music we're making right now for No Love, that's why I keep talking about the emotional core, and the vocal performances, the clarity... it's on some other shit. It's the natural progression of Death Grips. We messed around with some ideas that were more guitar-like on Exmilitary through sampling, and there's less of that on The Money Store. This time around, there's an essence to certain songs, a bit like Guillotine, which returns on No Love. You get the sense that even though it's not a guitar, it has qualities of guitar music: we're using the same techniques we use all the time to generate the feel of a guitar. That range. It has the feel and the energy of guitars.


That middle paragraph was bolded because it gives me a boner.

Word, shareeb. Actually, MC Ride does amazing things vocally, with all the different layers and different registers of voices he's using. Dude is a fine art painter.

Anyway, this album is NOT getting enough love on the Coma. You guys realize this is big, right?
