Death Grips – the powers that b

The two part release ‘the powers that b'(‘niggas on the moon’ and sister album ‘jenny death’) is an hour and twenty minutes of abrasive, abusive sound from experimental hip-hoppers the Death Grips. Ride’s vocals are as brutal and in-your-face as ever. Cryptic lyrics address serious subjects, though at points they would verge on comical if not for the committed delivery. Jenny death does feature some more conventional guitar, but as in previous releases, complex, synthetic, industrial noise and beats are pitted against near-indecipherable verses in a gladiator-esque fight to the death. Music for rampaging naked through an urban jungle.
