You might know some people who watch Rachael Ray’s talk-show. You know – your mother, your grandmother, and probably some of your aunts. Chances are that, given their interests, they probably don’t listen to Death Grips, but they might now if they watched a recent episode of Rachael that featured Fred Armisen (Portlandia, Saturday Night Live).

During Rachael’s segment where she gives guests 60 seconds to talk about whatever they want, Armisen shared his respect and admiration for Death Grips’ drummer, Zach Hill, urging the audience to check him out. Hopefully immediately after that episode, a bevy of woman ages 35 and up went home to find Death Grips on YouTube. Check out what he had to say in the video above.

“Hi, I’m Fred Armisen, I want to talk to you about, to start off with, a musician who I really think is the greatest ever. His name is Zach Hill, and he’s a drummer. He’s from Northern California, and he used to be in a band called Hella, and now he’s in a band called Death Grips. And he has reinvented how someone drums. When you see this guy play, it looks like a flurry of activity, it looks like a blur, it looks like a tantrum. You can’t even see it. And at first, when I saw this drummer, I was like, ‘What is happening?’ And then I realized later, ‘Oh, this guy is a genius.’ So Zach Hill, this drummer, check him out.”
