If the screams I let out at the Fox News Chan­nel were run through Autechre’s stu­dio appa­ra­tus, I might get a sound that comes clo­se to the mes­sy inten­si­ty of Sca­ven­gers, an impres­si­ve first outing by D.C. hip-hop duo Food For Ani­mals. From the bel­ly of the nation’s poli­ti­cal beast, pro­du­cer Ricky Rab­bit chops up abra­si­ve beats over and over for emcee Vul­tu­re Vol­taire to lay down his agi­ta­ted flow, which is no doubt influ­en­ced by the district’s legen­da­ry hard­core sce­ne.” (Ron Alba­ne­se)

Cracking and intri­ca­ted pop noi­se, mad abs­tract bas­ses and jui­cy poli­ti­cal texts. Food for Ani­mals has the poten­ti­al to beco­me the next real­ly big indie hip hop sen­sa­ti­on and may­be bring the first big noi­se hop album to the peop­le. Respect! From qujOchÖ, in da quitch, at the arse-end of the world. Kee­ping it real, Sucka. CU.
