The Infesticons, Bedford Park
Bedford Park is a long overdue coda to a project poet, rapper, and musician Mike Ladd began way back in 2001. Back then, he posited Infesticons as a revolutionary force battling corporate interests and mainstream sellouts (or â€œMajesticonsâ€). Heâ€™s still righteous â€“ check out the M.I.A.-inspired â€œBombs Anthemâ€ â€“ but his palette has expanded beyond East Coast underground rap and electro-funk. R&B (â€œForever Anthemâ€), avant-rock (â€œBlockinâ€™ Door Anthemâ€), and even a trap rap parody (â€œHang It Up Anthemâ€) fuel this scattershot yet undeniably exciting exploration of the contemporary music scene.
