Year of the Snitch is the sixth studio album by experimental hip hop group Death Grips, released on June 22, 2018, through Third Worlds and Harvest Records. With the release of Steroids (Crouching Tiger Hidden Gabber Megamix), Death Grips announced they were "working on the new Death Grips album".
Of course, like every Death Grips album, Year of the Snitch is about 10 minutes too long. Much like 2016’s Bottomless Pit, this album isn’t a significantly weaker work than The Money Store or NO LOVE DEEP WEB, but as with everything Death Grips, context matters
Year of the Snitch is OUT NOW. YouTube this site Apple Music. The music sounds just as dirty and grimy as the album cover. The album touches on more genres than any Death Grips project beforehand (including the hyper-intense electronica of Steroids on Disappointed), and does so while having a consistent feeling of vile grossness. I feel like I need to take a shower while listening to this, which is definitely not a bad thing.
Overall, Year of the Snitch feels like a personal experiment for Death Grips, but tilting towards a more mainstream sound. Not to say that the band has compromised its experimental attitude, but there is a definite leaning towards a more straightforward form, which in this case arrives with the heavier implementation of rock music motifs. Death Grips have not lost it yet. This is Death Grips most diverse album yet in my opinion, with a smorgasbord of different sounds. Many tracks on here take inspiration from different genres of music, with a Death Grips spin on them; such as rave music, arena-rock, punk-rock, jazz-rock, more traditional hip-hop, and probably more I couldn't pin-point myself. With all these sounds, Death.
