Now Soon Someday

I want to know what it is, not what it's been, and we know Beans has been the Mr. Ballbeam, displaying artistic onions as he straps hip-hop to his back, hoping, with all the hubris he can muster, to lug it into some future-music future of fried-out elecktro zaps and muzapper's hat-backwards heroics hitched up to headscratching with only a reverse-Mohawk sown-in-a-row in the road. Of course, that hasn't stopped our boy Beans from playing the aw-shucks card, thinking his beats so nice they're helping old ladies across the street, paying deference to the Warp that big-up'd him by leaving the circus and frying up the circuits, the beeps and bleeps mutescreamin' beatmade streamers strewn from a ceiling whose glass he long ago broke. Reasonable People, this one's for you. His future-of-hip-hop future already arrived when he delivered Tomorrow Right Now in last year's past, but with that futurist history now yesterday's old now, the Beans discography gets a tacked-on postscript, sewn anew with a Now Soon Someday setting its sights on the never-coming horizon, knowing the day'll get here when today's tomorrows drown in yesterday's sorrows (given us humans're doomed and all). But for now, on Now Soon Someday, we get a whole cremaster load of new b'tween-LPs testicular acktion, straight from the Ballbeam, nutted up with only a couple remixes from famous traveling folk El-P and Prefuse 73, both of whom forget getting ready to rock on "Mutescreamer," instead halving the tempo to suit their stoner's mood. Which is fine by this version of Beans. On the album preceding this, Beans barely kept beats at anything less than exuberant, but here he's happy to go off the beat with a laggard "Databreaker" missive supine in an islander's recline, and is sad enough to shake out the skeletons from that "Crevice" in the closet, fists Slam-ing on shit he authored back in his poetic open-mic salad days, setting such red-raw words to an oiled-up church organ churning like an upset boy's nervous stomach.
