Why? Get Set for An Album of "Song-Songs"
Published Jun 03, 2009Ever-weird Bay Area hip-hop crew Why? have announced the impending arrival of their upcoming record, and follow-up to last year's excellent Alopecia. Titled Eskimo Snow, the record will be out this fall and will feature ten tracks that were recorded during the Alopecia sessions.
In a recent interview with Pitchfork, Why? front-man Yoni Wolf opened up about the record, saying, "This record, Eskimo Snow, is really the least hip-hop out of anything I've ever been involved with. I mean, they feel like song-songs with - I don't want to say a typical verse-chorus structure - but they're song-songs."
While it's a little hard to imagine the increasingly poppy crew getting any less hip-hop, we'll just have to wait and see when Eskimo Snow finally drops on Anticon. Keep your eyes peeled for more info regarding the track list and release date.
