The Powers That B is the fourth studio album, and first double album, by experimental hip hop group Death Grips. The album's first disc, Niggas on the Moon, was released as a free digital download on June 8, 2014. The first disc's instrumentation was performed entirely on a Roland V-Drum kit by drummer Zach Hill and features chopped vocal samples of Icelandic singer-songwriter Björk on every track. The second half, Jenny Death, leaked online on March 19, 2015.
The title track from Death Grips' fourth album The Powers That B and the sixth track on its second disc, Jenny Death. It was the third song released from Jenny Death, following Inanimate Sensation and On GP. The single artwork includes a black and white screenshot from the music video for Guillotine, the second track from Death Grips' first mixtape, Exmilitary. The Powers That B" Track Info. Written By Zach Hill & MC Ride. Engineered By Andy Morin.
This is probably my least favourite Death Grips album. Though Niggas on the Moon by itself is quite strong, the second half Jenny Death, is in my opinion their least interesting stuff. It does have two standout tracks: 'Centuries of Damn' and 'On GP', but other than those I find myself revisiting part two the least. I love the use of Björk's vocals as a 'found sound' and Ride's lyrics on these tracks are some of my favourites. Particularly 'Black Quarterback' is a phenominal moment in lyricism. So while as a whole this album doesn't rank as high as their others, Niggas on the Moon alone is one of my favouite things they've done. 2016년 12월 12일. 신고. 다음 참조: The Powers That B, 2xLP, Album, 471200-8.
Half esoteric and half essential, The Powers That B is comprised of Niggas on the Moon, a strange, short album where guest Björk was sampled as her vocals collided with Death Grips' own MC Ride, and Jenny Death, a more traditional Death Grips LP which sounds like where they were heading, rather than just outtakes and leftovers.
