"I'll go unknown by torpedo or Crohn's / Only those evil live to see their own likeness in stone." When it dropped in 2008, Alopecia not only marked WHY?'s evolution from a sonically collaged mostly solo project to a live-recorded powerhouse band of badass multi-instrumentalists. It also minted a genre of one: wryly written, poignantly posed, simultaneously swaggering and heart-rending song-rap that jangles like folk, bursts like psych-rock, and sways like chamber pop. To this day, there is no other group in the known universe that sounds or feels like WHY? does on Alopecia. The album's 2018 10 year anniversary reissue cheekily etches that aural likeness into our musical history. Pressed up on indie exclusive cloud colored vinyl with bonus 7" featuring remixes by Boards Of Canada and Dntel on red colored vinyl.
