The disbanding of New York avant-rappers Anti-Pop Consortium was one of the less publicised but sadder splits of 2002. Now sporting a fetching pink mohawk, Beans is the first member to re-emerge, with an album that’s curiously both reassuring and disappointing. On the plus side, the Anti-Pop project of drawing parallels between hip hop and electronica continues. Beans’ pointed use of old-school electro here only emphasises the links. But his idiosyncratic rhyming style?sing-song, hyper-kinetic, hectoring?can grate without the leavening presence of other rappers.
