“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.
