Amoeba Review

03/01/2017

WHY?'s first full-length album since 2012's Mumps, Etc. sounds like a stream of consciousness collage of confusion, fears, and hopes. The anxieties pervading the world in 2017 are ever present throughout Moh Lhean, whose songs fade into one another in a way that evokes the constant rumination and evaluation that many of us have running through our heads. The mixing of indie rock and hip hop instrumentation makes the album hard to define as each track is a journey through eclectic textures, tempos, and attitudes. The unassuming anthem "This Ole King" is built on an acoustic guitar groove and dressed with layered vocals and lush instrumentation, which gives the songs a slow motion, cinematic feel. "Proactive Evolution" has an urgency and slight desperation that leads into funky rhythm shifts in the chorus, and is peppered throughout with psychedelic woodwinds and an unnerving soundscape of disconnected conversations being played at various speeds, while "One Mississippi" has an undeniable swagger that instills the listener with confidence and perseverance.
