rico loverde

diggin this, a bit harsh at the end though



Matos

Love dez cats. But I hope the album isn't so straight up like this. I love their weird hiphop maxi rave blast mix, so I hope they keep exploring. Just In case some get confused, they are not homophobic. Their dj, the mc spitting those lines, is gay. In south Africa certain words lack the strange power that they have over others. The dj is making the faggot word his bitch as they've said.

yea I agree I hope they keep the wackiness from the first but i must say this song sounds great loud with lots of sub!!!!! i still listen to the first album all the time.

they actually dropped Interscope because Interscope were trying to fuck with their sound and they decided to start their own label to release the new record, Zeph Records. Gotta love a band with morals!!!!

something about yo landi really turns me on...her voice makes me all tingly inside


mystico

SlayerBadger! Waddy Jones does it again. Definitely pushing buttons with this one.

I saw these guys do set with Aphex Twin in London a while back, it was pretty epic.


shreddoggie

What a strange 'band' - I love these guys because they have somehow managed to be commercial but progressive and yet get some attention too - good on em (mate)! - I don't know if I like the the music as much as I like them as artists - apparently totally CONTRIVED (btw). hmmmm.....


Fnord

I like the fact that they exist, but their music isn't my cup of tea. I hope they're very successful because the world just isn't weird enough for me.


ignatius

meh. it was OK. the whole end part was a flat yawn. there is a way to do that kind of thing and they didn't pull it off in my eyes.

there's something there though. i do like their more playful side. i hope they keep it weird.


laserpalace

Maybe this will clear some things up:



hihi I really dig the weirdo aesthetic. Not sure about their music though.


rico loverde

that was great laserplace... i really like their attitude, they bring a smile to my face. Mr. Green

that's funny. and yeah.. i get the whole idea of word ownership etc but that doesn't make it any less boring for me. perhaps it's just lost on me.

but i LOVE the earl sweatshirt record. seriously, i just don't get it

me too. it makes it easier for me to overlook the parts of the music i don't like... the crush on yolandi doesn't hurt either. that first track they put on youtube was a homerun 100% win for me.

wow the Earl Sweatshirt is crazy...pretty cool, love the video.


Matos

Earl rocks it hard. Haven't been on the up and up as of late but he was my favorite part of that whole sk8 clique. Last I heard he was in reform school and had to give up rhyming.

not to sidetrack the thread.. but the story goes.. earl's mom saw the video and sent him to boarding school/youth camp/boot camp in africa somewhere. he was 16 at the time and i thought he'd be back once he turned 18 but apparently wherever he is doesn't recognize adulthood until 21.

so, maybe he's in africa and can head south and link up with Die Antword for a wicked collaboration.

there i brought it back around smile

fuck thats crazy. bummer for him.


Ted

Those dudes are so fascinating. Have you seen the crazy thing they did with Harmony Korine?




chvad

i LOVE these guys. Saw them live a couple years ago and it was fucking amazing. GOBS of energy. Usually minimal sets with a few MC's and a DJ bore the snot out of me... these guys took a dead beat up crowd from an overly long festival and raised them and myself from the dead and ruled it. MIA had no chance after them... crowd left in a giant mob when she could keep up the pace.


opsysbug

Yes I saw the too in NYC. Those animal suits!! sexy... twisted


DGTom

perfect Burroughsian pop music

don't really get the connect with Earl Sweatshirt at all, that stuff is (to my ears) badly produced back-packer ish whereas Die Antwoord is polished futurista pop.

I think the confusion of sexual stereotypes is really interesting (but, is that REALLY DJ Hitek!?!) I love the way Yolandi flips back & forth from cutesy raver chick to violent skinhead chick all the time "worlds ugliest hottie" indeed!!

if you dig the rave-pop-art clusterfuck end of things check out 'the cat & the raven' mixtape by Venus-X from Ghe20 G0th1k. There is a bunch of their mixes floating around, but that's my favourite.


ndrd

Wish I could get into them but I completely do not get the appeal.
Like a WWE white trash comic book version of hip hop.


Audio Resistance

Haha, Ninja brought the pink Floyd shorts back in that first video. For some weird reason I really dig them and have since the first video started circulating.

Agreed though that the last part with DJ HiTech is just not good. I agree with Ignatious about it just not being done right.

Also, why the fuck am I so fascinated with Yolandi. It makes me feel dirty in an inbred whitetrash kind of way.


lunatic_machinist

their previous stuff was way better. faggot just strikes me as an attempt at being gangsta and not doing anything out of the ordinary to somehow make that interesting. a failed irony or parody or, worse, a simply failed attempt.

I do enjoy their other stuff, though. rich bitch and that song about african tribal penis cutting rituals or whatever are my two favourites.

i thought it was relevant due the lyrical content/style of the end of the Die Antword track and how to pull off that kind of thing.. since i think the earl track nails it. but yes.. they are totally different. the Earl stuff and crew is hip hop plain and simple. Die Antword is more pop but i don't see how Die Antword could possibly not be 'different' whatever they do.

Yolandi is a hottie. period. i think the whole sexual stereotype confusion is awesome. its just one step closer to people not being hung up on that kind of shit.. even if it is just in a small way.


JILT

Yeah I like it. Ever since I heard Enter the Ninja Ive been checkin em out.


Matos

New album out now brown cow. Hit iTunes like a beast and got my download on. Only on the first track but so far I'm throwing crazy gang signs and doing the biz markie. applause
