Amoeba Review

10/29/2012

This band breaks boundaries and expands horizons like few others do, and they're back to take you on another wild ride. MC/vocalist Yoni Wolf and crew can't decide whether they're an indie rock band, an indie rap crew, or a mariachi klezmer funeral orchestra, so instead they create their own dimension of sound, blazingly original, propulsive, lovely and melodic. Wolf himself is a creative loose cannon, spewing weird, intricate, confessional verse, self-putdowns, celebrations of magic and firestorms of critique. This one features some of their most progressive, challenging material, with contributions from the University of North Texas' music school on everything from harp to woodwinds. And Yoni Wolf is at his most fearless, savaging his own unhipness one minute and dropping lines of crushing emotional power the next. Why? leads a phantom parade of their own imaginings directly into the unknown. If you really want to hear something different, try this.
