Featuring many vocals by Björk, The first eight songs of powers that b entitled niggas on the moon, can be played or download below.
The experimental, industrial hip hop rockers, from Sacramento, California, find may cleaver ways to blend the Icelandic artist whose music spans across genres including but not limited to alternative rock, jazz, electronic dance music,classical, and avant-garde, with their eclectic samples, electo riffs and beat drops. Whether as a solid vocal, used as an instrument or cut and played in an eerie repetition, Björk adds a dimension to this album that sets it apart from previous works such as the The Money Store which received positive reviews and placed ninth place in Pitchfork’s 2012 Best Albums.
