The Death Set return with the first single from their new album, Michel Poiccard. The record is prefigured by tragedy, founder member and co-writer Beau Velasco having died early in the recording and writing process. You wouldn't necessarily know it to hear the first single, though. Slap Slap Slap Pound Up Down Snap is a blast of pure energy, producer XXXchange (Spank Rock, Kele Okereke) playing the Rick Rubin role to the Death Set's early Beasties screaming rap-yelp, expanding the beats and hardening the guitar lines until the whole thing snaps. Brutal, funny and undeniably exciting, it is, Johnny Siera explains, about "the handshake that all our friends do here in Brooklyn. Fun lil handshake. You'll get the idea when you see the instructional video we're making." Exclusive track Been Too Long sounds like the soundtrack to Pretty In Pink being vandalised by teen speed freaks, while the O.G Version of viral sensation Yo David Chase! You P.O.V. Shot Me In The Head ditches the slinky Diplo-funk of the original for a more traditional punk workout. Short, sharp and motherfucking loud, the Death Set are back.
