Jenny Death is unrelentingly brutal and unapologetically somber. It combines Death Grips' pulse-pounding electronic production with guitar-driven instrumentation. Inanimate Sensation menaces, maims, and mangles, while On GP serves as a reminder of the group’s solemn profundity. Before the album’s release on March 19, 2015, fan anticipation was palpable.
Keeping up with the Death Grips has increasingly become a headache.
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.
Jenny Death, the second disc of the double album The Powers That B (with Niggas on the Moon serving as the first), is the antithesis to the idea that Death Grips is a subversive act. Those who make that argument may be right; we could be recapping some explanatory, profound MC Ride NYU lecture 10 years down the road. Death Grips seem designed to challenge intellectually, yet their best material hits on a visceral level.
In summary, Jenny Death might not be the best release from the groundbreaking experimental hip hop artists, but when it shines, it shines blindingly bright. fav tracks: Inanimate Sensation, On GP, Pss Pss, Centuries of Damn.
