“This Ole King”
WHY? will release its sixth album, Moh Lhean , on March 3rd via Joyful Noise Recordings. A follow-up to 2012’s Mumps, Etc., it’s the first fully home-recorded WHY? album since the project’s 2003 debut, made mostly in Yoni Wolf’s studio and co-produced by his brother Josiah. Yoni Wolf has a voice that can melt lead with it’s emotional hit. Singing over an acoustic guitar and percussion, while synthesizer swirl around and around, Wolf’s voice is vulnerable and heartfelt. Movement is the key to the album: movement away from the terrors evident in WHY?’s first albums to some sort of salvation. As usual, WHY? delivers beautiful, almost frightening music. And listening you will say, why not.
