It seems that experimental hip-hop group Death Grips have unexpectedly released their new album onto Facebook for free downloading. At approximately 4:15 P.M. (Eastern), links to the new material were posted from YouTube and Soundcloud, as well as download links to the album's zip files. Entitled "Government Plates", the album features 11 new songs, including their recent single, "Birds".

I dunno about you guys but I love ex-military. The bigger name songs off of it are all great. And fucking spread eagle cross the block is a classic. The sample makes that song.

People listen to Death Grips because they're one of the most talented, interesting, and innovative groups around.

I don't think they'll ever top The Money Store but after two listens, it seems like this will come damn close.
