I dunno about you guys but I love ex-military. The bigger name songs off of it are all great. And fucking spread eagle cross the block is a classic. The sample makes that song.

People listen to Death Grips because they're one of the most talented, interesting, and innovative groups around.

I don't think they'll ever top The Money Store but after two listens, it seems like this will come damn close.

not really. the new one has far too less varity to keep it interesting the whole time. or maybe it just needs some time to click? i have the feeling there are duplicate songs on it
