Beans always poses as an abstractionist, freaking motormouth cadences with a self-professed “mind that’s literary.” But on his fifth solo album, the former Anti-Pop Consortium rapper is actually more of a traditionalist, with songs grounded in elaborate boasts (save the post-recession critique “Air Is Free,” where he rues oil spills and government bailouts as the “new hard times”). Beans’ avalanche of verbiage can obscure his nuances, but a cast of collaborators — disco evangelist In Flagranti, electro-hop eccentric Tobacco, psychedelic beat guru Four Tet, even Interpol’s Sam Fogarino — burnish his rhyme schemes into high-tech funk.
