    Default So there's this band called Why?.

    What's the issue here? Did Yoni try to steal Tollett's toffees in middle school?

    That Rubber Traits video is an abortion.

    Still on the high quality end of abortion soundtracks, though. The hook room at my local clinic only plays Top 40.

    This is for Hannah, mostly: Have you noticed how much Why? has been featured recently on TAL? There must be some serious fanboys on the show's staff.

    Great band. Saw them at Sasquatch last year where they were relegated to the 3rd stage, despite being one of the best bands on the lineup.

    I have noticed. I believe Jessica Hopper still picks the music and will continue to do so until I kill her and wear her skin as a costume so it becomes my job. I hope she exfoliates.

    Wait, Jessica, obsessed-with-Steve-Albini-catfight Hopper? One and the same?

    I decided to start with Alopecia before I popped back into this thread, mates. Thanks for looking out.

    After hearing the lyrics to "Good Friday," I can see why Pot likes these guys.

    I like this so far. Interesting.

    I feel to get the full listening experience with why? one should have the lyrics in hand. It's amazing.
    cLOUDEAD with Odd Nosdom and Doseone is some real good stuff too.

    Definitely Belong on the overdue indie list, with the likes of Bon Iver (gayngs doesn't count), Dodos, Wild Beasts, Antlers, Bat For Lashes, Sunset Rubdown, Sufjan Stevens, Fijuya & Miyagi, White Denim, Phantom Band, Mountain Goats, Janelle Monae (Okay it's only been a year but how could she have not been on 2011 lineup), Matthew Dear, Grinderman/Nick Cave, Joanna Newsom, Destroyer, Iron & Wine, Eluvium, The Books, Apples In Stereo, Fuck Buttons, Japandroids, Sunn 0))), Futures Of The Left, Memory Tapes, Low, Dengue Fever, Plants & Animals, Marnie Stern, Midlake, The Ike Rielly Assassination, Subtle, Califone, Casitones For The Painfully Alone, Mark Lanegan in some guise, etc., etc.

    Probably 10 or so on here that played in earlier years that I've mistakenly included, but none of these acts since '08

    Matthew Dear, Midlake and Subtle have all played. But you're right, most of those are serious omissions.

    Sorry if this has been gone over already elsewhere, but here are some details about the upcoming shows:

    Why? has laid out a new set of Fall tour dates for September and October, starting in their hometown of Philadelphia and ending in Chicago with a show at the Museum of Contemporary Art. The Why? tour looks to be an informal and intimate tour, with the band playing unplugged versions of the material and opening up the floor to questions from the audience. It's the Why? interactive tour! Why not?!

    Why? members Yoni Wolf, Josiah Wolf and Doug McDiarmid will take Anticon Redords labelmate Serengeti with them to open all of the shows.

    "... They'll hit sit-down venues across North America, playing unplugged-type shows where they'll preview songs from their as-yet-untitled forthcoming album and give the crowd chances to ask questions," reads a report from Pitchfork.

    The press release fom the band expands on that notion a bit:

    "Most of the set will be previously unheard, culled from the ongoing writing and recording sessions for WHY?'s next LP, which looks to build upon the taut folk-rap and swaggerful psych-pop of 2008's Alopecia. Fan favorites, cult classics and covers are to be expected as well, alongside highlights from the band's most recent record, Eskimo Snow (2009). At each stop, the crowd will be seated, treated to behind-the-scenes jaw-jacking, and given the chance to ask questions."

    Place your new album bets now, folks. More references to death, or more references to fellatio? I say 7 death, 5 fellatio. Prize to be determined. No purchase necessary. Void in Guam and where prohibited.
