So I volunteer the information! When writing about my favorite records of 2008 with web in front, I said, "Yoni Wolf is woefully underrated and my current favorite lyricist. He holds this position if not for his alarming admissions of sexual proclivities too embarrassing to reveal even to his therapist and beautifully elaborate descriptions of both the macabre and the mundane, then for his ability to write the best similes I’ve ever heard. Yoni doesn’t write for the lowest common denominator, he writes what he thinks is best."
So anyway, you can imagine my shaking and crying excitement when TheBayBridged.com and New, Improved Recording featured Yoni Wolf in the third installment of their collaboration - a monthly live studio session with some really remarkable and relevant artists: New, Improved, LIVE. Follow that link for Yoni's solo interpretations of three WHY? songs and one cover of a band that I will say I have never been able to like until I heard this moving version. Are you listening, guys? I mean, really listening?
Eskimo Snow comes out on 22 September on Anticon. WHY? will be playing The Echoplex with AU on 20 October.
