On stage... WHY?

WHY? - These Hands / January Twenty Something from anticon. on Vimeo.

The band from Cincinnatti, Ohio will play in Paris on March 25th at La Maroquinerie. Before his first year in high school Jonathan Wolf called Yoni, discovered an old 4-track in his father's synagogue and began to experiment musically. Later, his brother Josiah and Doug McDiarmid joined his project to form WHY?… For their third LP Alopecia, they asked fans to contribute photographs of their palms for the album's artwork. It was released on March 11th, 2008 to very positive reviews, with The Hollows as the first single and the excellent These Few Presidents. Two different european and US versions of the single were released featuring remixes and covers by Boards of Canada, Xiu Xiu or Islands, … on their respective issues. On September 22th, 2009 they released their fourth LP, entitled Eskimo Snow, Yoni Wolf described those new songs as "the least hip-hop out of anything I've ever been involved with". They perform live with Andrew Broder (guitar) and Mark Erickson (bass).
Here is the video of the two first tracks of Eskimo Snow, These Hands and January Twenty Something, listen and enjoy...
