Add your comment »


Rucksacks on, boys! Earnest and thoughtful hippy hop troupe WHY? have announced their signing to the City Slang label in Europe, along with the release of a new EP this August (which will be released in the US through Anticon). The six-track Sod In The Seed will be a limited edition tour-only 12" (dates where you can get it below) though a digital version will be available. We're told that Sod in the Seed is a scion of the WHY? to come - Aiee! There's a new album, also on City Slang, coming too. The title track, which you can look at below, is a typically catchy discussion of the "First World's curse" - "who am I to judge a man's heart by his yacht wear?" they ask, wisely. Check out the track below, and the forthcoming tour


8th - Old Market, Brighton
9th - Electric Ballroom, London
10th - Central Methodist Church, Manchester
11th - Bristol, Fleece
12th - SWG3, Glasgow
13th - The Bulington, Oxford
