Death Grips Soundtrack/Album
2013-05-10 by Eric Greenman | 53 Comments
After already releasing two albums in 2012, Death Grips are already in the works of another album. Zach Hill, who did not tour with Death Grips in order to finish his own film, has been working on recording the new Death Grips album during the entire tour. It is unclear how progressed the album is, but it isn't Zach Hill's number one priority with his new film in the works. The film's music will all be new Death Grip's songs, but the film will have no relation with the group.

When asked about Zach's involvement in the group, the band had this to say:

"Zach is currently writing, directing and soundtracking an original feature film. The movie is of his own creation, fictionally based and not related to the group. The film will be soundtracked with all new Death Grips music. He is also working on and recording the new Death Grips album at the moment. Death Grips is Stefan. Zach. Andy. Zach is very much still in Death Grips."

The whole article/interview can be read here on Pitchwork:

I feel like their inspiration and originality is going to take continual blows with these constant streams of albums. I'd imagine it's hard to write so many songs so quickly and still have them retain a degree of quality.

Despise this logic. If an artist is talented enough, the quality will be consistent. It's a matter of the listener either getting sick of what the band does, or having listened for the wrong reasons to begin with. The rate at which an artist creates is not culpable for any dip in quality, the artist's creativity is.

In my experiences, artists who release at a quicker rate end up being more consistent and creative. They seem to be much more passionate about the art of crafting music, instead of letting external factors impede their art.

"Despise this logic."

Except it seems that their quality of music has decreased the more they put out.

Okay, well David Bowie released his three best albums from 1971-73 and three other indubitably classic albums from 1976-77. Led Zeppelin released 6 classic, influential records between 1969 and 1975, two of which were released in the same year and all were written and recorded in incredibly short periods of time. Miles Davis released two of the most influential jazz albums in the same year (1969) and then three more great albums in the next year. John Frusciante released four fantastic albums from 2004-05. The Jimi Hendrix Experience released three of most influential guitar records of all time between 1967-68. I'm noticing a recurring contrast between the most prolific and most influential artists - that's not to say that quantity = quality, the point is that certain artists and musicians can have match high output with high quality.

I'm no fan of hip-hop, but I even I can recognize Death Grips make great music. Most interesting group in their genre IMO.

I was a little confused by the wording on this story. Is Zach Hill not going to be on the upcoming tour, or was he just missing on the last one? I'm seeing them on June 9 and I was hoping he'd be playing.

They've put out three albums. The first and third are about the same quality and the second is a little bit better. Elitist exaggeration. It's not "credible" as a music critic to love everything that a band does, for whatever reason. The more albums a band puts out, the more strict reviewers become in combing for flaws, sometimes even creating them.

The only times, I find, that there are legitimate drops in recording quality, is when there is a line-up change. The other times are due to a change in motivation; perhaps they write for a larger audience as opposed to writing out of passion. Luckily, I mostly listen to bands where one or two people make all of the music so I don't have to worry much about that.

One should consider that inspiration also comes with events and new experiences. The making of this film and the relationship of it with the music should at least give them some ideas. Given that I love their style, I'll give this a try without a doubt.

I get more excited about new material from these guys than any other band right now. they're just on a wholly unique level. and judging from Flatlander's remixes during their boiler room set they'll hopefully be getting back to the insanely complex production of The Money Store next time around.

It's not as if Zach was doing anything that innovative before DG. If anything, what he's doing now is more note-worthy, although DG isn't my cup of tea, either.

I was really into Death Grips for a little while, but it got old pretty fast. I prefer the non-hip hop projects of Zach Hill. He'll probably move on to something different pretty soon.

I don't understand why so many people hold such a flagrant disposition for this group. It's just their nature, I guess.
