Niggas on the Moon finds Death Grips drawing from themselves rather than pushing things forward, a deviation from their mission statement.

Consequence of Sound

niggas on the moon primarily relies on the band’s chaotic, ever-evolving sonic disposition — and as a bonus, we’ve never heard Ride sound quite like this. It’s an exciting proposition.

I truly adore this release from Death Grips, their most underrated in my opinion. This is an intoxicating euphoria of an album. The production here is mind-blowingly brilliant and infectious, with a lot of these tracks revolving around consistent Bjork sampling. They way they execute the production/instrumentation is so diverse and rich with electronic sounds, technical drumming, and vocal instrumenting from Bjork and MC Ride; while still sounding as experimental, genre-bending, and futuristic ... read more
