    Why? (styled as WHY?) is an American alternative hip hop and indie rock band. The band was founded in 2004 by Berkeley, California artist Jonathan "Yoni" Wolf, who had been using 'Why?' as his stage name since 1997.

    I did not see that!!! ^^^

    Anyways, Why? is one of my favorite artists and Yoni is my favorite lyricist other than Aaron Weiss.

    I've seen them once and they sounded absolutely phenomenal. Been waiting for them to come through again ever since.

    love the compilation - such a cool, ambient vibe, insane lyrics... could never get really into TEN for some reason

    as to WHY? - love Alopecia and Testarrossa was pretty good at some points - will spin it more

    how about Subtle? fh:ff is a masterpiece to me

    Absolutely love both episodes of Weiss on that podcast. I've listened to them multiple times.

    you're a germ

    alopecia is such a perfect album but unfortunately they have fell off my radar for a good time since then. maybe a new release will rekindle my appreciation for them.

    Mumps Etc... is fantastic.

    Paper Hearts is one of their best songs ever, imo

    Alopecia is good

    but

    it has 2 tracks in particular that make me feel a certian way - unexpected for this "style" of music
