RIYL: Death Grips, Liars, Preoccupations, No Age

Label: Castle Face Records

For the uninitiated, The I.L.Y.’s are Zach Hill and Andy Morin of Death Grips, but don’t look at this project as a side gig.  This is fully-realized post punk with experimental leanings, the perfect combination of traditional songwriting and off-kilter studio tinkering.  If the waters in Lake Death Grips are a bit too torrential for your skill set, try out The I.L.Y.’s and baby-step your way into enlightenment.  Fans of Preoccupations, Liars, No Age and the weirder side of post-punk fringe will find plenty to love here.

This marks the first physical product that The I.L.Y.’s have released, so grab your copy as quick as you can.  Death Grips fans (who are also I.L.Y.’s fans) are vast and most of them are meth addicts, so you know they’re quick on the draw.  Get that ‘Krang Smudge’ splatter vinyl after the ‘buy’ link and listen to the whole album on Spotify below.

This is their first for Castle Face and we're very proud to present the physical editions here.
