Death Grips – The Powers That B Pt. 1 a.k.a. Niggas On The Moon

Death Grips are at their most glitchy, experimental, and esoteric on the first half of their new album.

Death Grips – Niggas On the Moon

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!

MONOLITHS. – “No Love” ft. Charlie Mansion (Death Grips Cover)

The Massachusetts rock outfit MONOLITHS. has a pretty diverse set of covers on this new Bandcamp release they’ve recently dropped, and Death Grips ranks among the handful of artists these guys decided to cover. Their song of choice: “No Love,” which is one of the more frighteningly aggressive tracks off the experimental hip hop trio’s NO LOVE DEEP WEB. Even though the verse riffs seem to be off tempo a tick, it’s a pretty interesting rendition. Enjoy!

Death Grips – Government Plates

While Death Grips’ Government Plates might be one of the most aggressive releases to come from the experimental hip hop trio, it’s also one of their most forgettable, repetitious, short-winded, and half-baked.

Death Grips – Government Plates

The experimental California hip hop outfit known as Death Grips has dropped their latest full-length out of the blue with no explanation at all. It’s streamable on SoundCloud, watchable on YouTube, and downloadable on a slew of different file-sharing sites. The title: Government Plates. Give a listen below, and catch reviews for the trio’s three major records down there as well:

Death Grips Boiler Room x Ray-Ban LIVE Show @ SXSW

Death Grips’ full set at the 1100 Warehouse a few weeks ago during the SXSW festivities. As you may already know, I was down in front for this, and it was intense as hell.

Watch These Psykers Rehearsals

With loads of strange MIDI sound effects, synths, and a live drum kit, the recently formed Psykers are on their way to producing a twisted, enthralling, and electronic monster of some sort. The handful of video rehearsals they’ve pulled together so far on YouTube are pretty impressive. They’ve even put in the effort to grab a few dancers to perform along with their noisy, textured, and groove-laden jams.

The beginning to these videos is the song “Battleship,” and it’s a for an awesomely foreign flavor to it. However, the third and untitled rehearsal video, I think, will grab the attention of either Death Grips or dubstep fans–maybe both. Lightning bolt? Enjoy!

Death Grips – “Come Up and Get Me”

An insanely long and strange set of visuals from Death Grips here on this out-there video for “Come Up and Get Me,” which comes off the experimental hip hop trio’s latest full-length, NO LOVE DEEP WEB.

Unfortunately, due to complications with their label, the album no longer seems to be available for download on the band’s Third Worlds site.
