Anti-Pop Consortium
$11-13

When Anti-Pop Consortium burst on the scene at the turn of the millennium, their MO was decidedly different from the hiphop zeitgeist of the time. In an era when bling-bling and "Big Pimpin'" was at its absolute apex, the four-person crew from New York City united under the credo "disturb the equilibrium." Before long, the group signed to Warp Records, which led to high-profile tours with Radiohead and DJ Shadow. Then, at the height of their renown, they disbanded in 2002 in order to experiment with side projects and solo releases. Two years ago Anti-Pop Consortium was reborn, reuniting for some live shows that led to their most recent full-length Fluorescent Black. Continuing to raise the bar of excellence set a decade ago, they seem to be intent on proving that not only were they ahead of their time, but that they're still at the top of their game. RYAN FEIGH
