    Combichrist: Making Monsters, Racking Up Huge Bar Bills

    It's not comfortable music. It's the kind of album you put on when your own expressions of hate and disdain for humanity as a whole are just adequate, and you require the input of a true artiste in the realm of clenched-fist rage. Regardless, it is i...

    Die Antwoord

    We get the same feeling listening to South African import Die Antwoord's debut album $O$ that we got spinning the first M.I.A album way back in 2005, or even The Streets and Dizzee Rascal before that. The States may have created hip-hop, but it's qui...
