My continual obsession with the lyrics and music of a band called Why? won’t be diminishing even a little, as frontman Yoni Wolf announced to Pitchfork they’ll be releasing another album this fall. The new LP is titled Eskimo Snow and was recorded at the same time as Alopecia, only to be postponed for a while as it began to take on a personality of its own. I love surprises. (Rumor also has it they’re coming to Bham later this year.)
Related: I’m downloading a free mixtape by Themselves called theFREEhoudini. I missed Themselves at Bottletree a month or two back—they’re a band featuring former member(s?) of cLOUDDEAD (group that spun anticon. records and a couple of acts including Why?). The mixtape also features guest spots from Yoni, Aesop Rock, Slug from Atmosphere, and nearly a dozen rappers I’ve never heard of. Download it for free.
Now it’s time to get some work done.
