Oakland band Why? are my current favorite poetical musicians. Their album Alopecia is what I've heard so far, many times, and it's so various, it reminds me of the Gris Gris, another great Oakland band who I guess have broken up. I think there is another band in this category in my mind. What was it Jenny?
Anyway, Why? Check out the music, the words, or the website: Anticon Records .
Also, everybody probably likes them already, but Tapes and Tapes.
