Death Grips – niggas on the moon

Nearly two years removed from the boner-ized NO LOVE DEEP WEB scandal (and “scandal” is the word for it, considering the widespread fallout), Death Grips are still pretty hard to pin down. The Sacramento outfit of MC Ride, Zach Hill, and (sometimes?) Andy “Flatlander” Morin continue down their meticulously planned path and, as a result of their supremely punk ideals, it’s hard to look away. One of the few things we know for sure about niggas on the moon — the eight-song, 31-minute project Death Grips surprise-released on Monday — is that it’s the first of a two-part album called the powers that b. If nothing else, it’s an intense, characteristic release that extends Death Grips’ reputation as a force of perpetual motion. In turn, it generates anticipation for the follow-up, due out sometime this year.
