Why? the band–Yoni Wolf, Josiah Wolf, Doug McDiarmid–carries on their calculated blitzkrieg on the self-manufactured Jangle-Rap, Indie Pop’n’Roll genre, but the stakes are raised.

Throwing their samplers to the wind, Why? recorded live as a five-piece. By the time the core trio returned to Oakland (wherever Thee A lot more Shallows’ D. Kessler engineered a closing session), they had amassed their most quick and cohesive batch of tracks to date. 14 tracks. 2008.
