YO! It’s clipping. bitches, again. Today on Louder Than War I published an interview with the band’s daveed diggs, william hutson & jonathan snipes, collectively the dopest motherfuckers ever tumbled out fallopians. Fact.
Rallying behind the clarion call “It’s clipping., bitches” the experimental rap come noise trio have had quite a year so far. First came their debut album, midcity, which has been pretty much universally lauded around the internets, (and easily earned itself a spot in our mid-year albums of the year list). Rocking it out to both ‘slick, elegant & catchy’ but also ‘harsh, abrasive & difficult’ extremes it’s the biggest breath of fresh air you will have heard all year & it provoked thoughts (in us at least) along the lines of “these guys could be massive if they got picked up by a major label”. Cue the mighty Sub Pop stepping up to the oche & proving once again they’re as current, daring & forward thinking as any label out there by offering to welcome them aboard “the Sub Pop train,” an offer which was duly accepted. The future is bright, the future is clipping., bitches.
