EDITORS’ NOTES

On Bottomless Pit, Death Grips present a strikingly concise iteration of their hip-hop radicalism. The music is still utterly bonkers, but it’s a bonkers that is tightly scripted. Opener “Giving Bad People Good Ideas” cuts straight to the chase, achieving nuclear meltdown via a marriage of neo-gabber hyper-stutter, sci-fi lysergia, and MC Ride’s sweat-soaked hardcore bark; “Bubbles Buried in This Jungle” downshifts effortlessly into fractured thumping beneath wheezing synths and abstract word-splatter. The closing title track comes full circle, unleashing turbo-charged, weird-punk fury that would make Boredoms as pleased as punch.
