Who is the most important band of the 2010s and why is it Death Grips?
>But really, there hasn't been any new artists so far this decade that are any good
This is a music board, apply yourself.
I feel like Clipping was the result of those guys hearing DG and wanting to take the production to the extreme, while softening the vocals.
If we were to compare them to the influence of Can though, it took until the late 70s for their influence to be seen with Joy Division and PIL.
Jam City, especially for pic related
First band with a true punk ethos and in nearly thirty years and the first indications of a destructive, future primitive digital generation.
They're experimental hip-hop's saving grace in every observable facet.
Yes, OP, you're right. Even if here they're considered a meme, which is the most memetic bullshit somebody could think, they are not only really good but they already have and will influence a lot of people. Ex: Kanye West - Yeezus ( Okay, you may think it's meme bullshit, but is something nontheless)
I always forget about this album, but it's great. What else do they have? I don't know anything about the person/band or whatever. I don't even know what genre it is. I know they collabed with Main Attrakionz which is weird but great.
>People will credit Death Grips influence to Yeezus on your lifetime
what a fucking excuse of an album, I never understood how people took it seriously, it sounds very unfinished and extremely hollow
Jam City is under the Night Slug label. They kind of have similar stuff. Sadly though nowadays they're just trying to cash in on the success of Classical Curves.
Maybe check out
L-Vis 1990 - Neon Dreams
Egyptrixx - Bible Eyes
listened to this before. pretty cool
i would probably like him if he wasn't so 'look at me guys xd'
sounds like stuff that's been done a million times
Did a trip really just call someone out for special snowflake syndrome HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA THATS FUCKING HILARIOUS
Check out Ho99o9 (pronounced "horror") on soundcloud. They've directly stated that DG are an influence of theirs.
They sound like DG but with more emphasis on the punk influence rather than the electronic influence.
Hi, does anyone have the piano sheet music of time after time by Eva Cassidy.
It's really hard to find, and i need it for a concert on Saturday.
I only found the Cyndi Lauper version, but it isn't the same.
I like the Eva Cassidy version more.
>using names on 4chan
I think we are already seeing their influence. Beyonce essentially copied them when she surprised every one and released an album with no promotion and music videos for every track. The producer of that album was this new guy named Boots.
Fast forward to the new Run the Jewels album. Many say its sort of like a pop version of the Death Grips sound. I could easily see it. Aggressive lyrics coupled with death grips style beats. Funny thing is, Boots was the producer of that album. Run the Jewels 2 is on most album of the year lists even taking the top spot on Stereogums.
I honestly think their both their sound and antics are already being emulated in popular music.
I agree with this. Let's look at their live shows for one
If you've seen them, or seen footage, It feels inccccredibly new. No one currently has a DJ/keyboardist(sometimes), punk vocalist/rapper, and a live drummer of zach's caliber in a band together. I honestly couldn't classify it into a genre specifically.
If you've seen them, here's what ya got
Andy running the set through(mpk49) while resampling Ride and the song(korg), Zach (Full kit), Ride (sometimes they brought an actual guillotine)
>nldw days (no Andy)
Zach with a kick, floor tom,snare(off) tuned very low, premade ableton set with automated effects on Ride's vocals, more intense Ride +backing tracks.
Andy running the set(mpk49)+extra keyboard parts+manipulating zach's now digital drum signal, Zach(minimal kit+racktom) drumming over skype, crazy intense Ride +backing tracks.
>FYF final show
Same as SXSW, except with Zach playing live with the minimal kit +2 cymbols(like in the handcuffs video), Ride. (altered setlist, including Hacker)
They do a harsh noise/drum solo opening every show, and sometimes a second more chill noise/drum section before The Fever.
They also did a few more traditional rap format sets in there with just Andy+Ride.
>TLDR Basically Zach plays hype-chop improvised drums, where he mirrors his chops with the lyrics to the rhythm of the vocal flow. Except Ride is sometimes just speaking, and other times downright yelling while Zach goes out on a limb with a long chop. All to the tune of industrial instrumentals and mixtape'ish backing beats.
I think this trio format would be an amazing place for hip-hop to go. Cuz really it's all about the beat and the lyrical flow.
>influencing anything, or at least, anything relevant
kek you dg fanbois are delusional. Pray tell, without mentioning these words:
Exactly what has meme grips influenced?
They are a novelty that hipsters ate up. Nothing more
Oh look, a Meme Grips fan that hasn't been to a noise/experimental show before. Be careful bro, your ears are still developing at age 16. Don't wreck them while you're still young!
>If you've seen them, or seen footage, It feels inccccredibly new. No one currently has a DJ/keyboardist(sometimes), punk vocalist/rapper, and a live drummer of zach's caliber in a band together. I honestly couldn't classify it into a genre specifically.
Top fucking laff
>Beyonce essentially copied them when she surprised every one and released an album with no promotion and music videos for every track.
So Meme Grips came up with the "non-commercialized" concept of releasing music.
>Fast forward to the new Run the Jewels album. Many say its sort of like a pop version of the Death Grips sound. I could easily see it. Aggressive lyrics coupled with death grips style beats.

>Aggressive lyrics coupled with death grips style beats
You mean like what even bands like RATM were doing 15 years ago? Minus the autistic keyboard's "muh harsh noises" crap, of course
Guys pls stop, you're killing me
Oh yes, I have, I downloaded Ex-Military a few days after it dropped. I saw them open for Bjork too.
There is nothing wrong with Death Grips. But their fanbase is the worst of any act I can think of. 100% Fanboyism and nonsense
>meme grips fanboi mad that his echochamber was disrupted
It's ok, once you're an adult you'll look back and laugh at the fact that you use to worship some no talent Negro yelling in a mike to the sounds of a shitty keyboardist.
What "argument"? Faggot is declaring Meme Grips as the second coming of Christ, when all the "reasons" why his meme band is the best can be found at any other noise/experimental/whathave you show. Sure, with a lot less dickriding, and not in the same package but
>It feels inccccredibly new
How To Spot a Teenager
I think I spotted one here.
If you're actually this delved into teen-culture, that you can't fulfill a sentence without using catchphrases from said culture, you probably shouldn't point fingers.
