Why?

"Dumb Hummer" (Anticon)

In countless interviews, Yoni Wolf insists that despite his hip-hop roots, Why? isn't mired in that tradition. "Dumb Hummer" — its Willy Wonkian, seraphim-heralding layers of ivory, keyboards, guitar jangle, and bicycle bells positively Fiery Furnaces in construction — draws a line in the sand between his band and its chart-jocking brethren: "If you've got a chain around your license plate/Or cosmetic gold teeth/I don't know you." You've been warned.
