Label: Anti/Epitaph
Boots Riley returns to the mic after months spent as a high-profile leader of Oakland's Occupy movement. His Coup has changed -- Pam the Funkstress is gone, replaced by a band that includes backing vocalist Silk-E. He adds a punkish rock touch to The Coup's usual Bay Area funk, from a kazoo rhythm on "Your Parents' Cocaine" to a folksy accordion and guest vocals from Jolie Holland on "We've Got a Lot To Teach You, Cassius Green." It's a striking evolution, but as usual it's just a backdrop for Boots' memorable agit-rap critiques of armchair hipster activism ("You Are Not a Riot").
