Death Grips - Niggas On the Moon

New Musicadmin4 Comments

Out of the blue, Death Grips drops a new, 8-song project titled Niggas On the Moon, which is supposed to be the first installment of a double album that we should be seeing the second half of later this year. The title of this thing: The Powers That B.

Sonically, NOTM doesn't sound too unlike the recently released Government Plates. The sounds are synthetic, abrasive, and assembled in a jittery display of disorienting proportions. Thankfully, the project features a stronger lyrical component than Government Plates as well.

For an added layer of confusion, Björk is somehow involved with this thing as well. Knowing Death Grips, this project is probably laced with an incalculable number of Björk samples. There's a pretty audible one toward the end of "Billy Not Really," I think.

Stream this project via the widget above, and hit up the DG Facebook page for a download link, which I know the band had posted the night of this album's release onto YouTube and Soundcloud. No guarantee it's still there, though. Enjoy!
