An interview with the lead singer of Why?, Yoni Wolf, said something to the effect that he was a romantic psychotic with a big heart. Such a bold statement might give real insight into the crazy, mashed-up, mixed up world of WHY?, whose most recent full-length, Mumps, Etc, is yet another cathartic vehicle for Yoni. As such, it’s got everything from folk, to electronica, to hip-hip, and maybe even a little bit of world music. And it’s also the perfect place for one’s ears to reside if you’re feeling as crazy as Yoni. These days, who isn’t? WHY?’s labelmates on Anticon Records, Astronautalis, join this fray with experimental hip-hop; Dream Tiger is the creation of Liz Wolf, a musician in the current incarnation of the WHY? band.
