WHY? is... a folk-pop, indie-hop, sometimes-mustachioed, psych-rock quartet that operates out of the Oakland Bay Area under the bold banner of the anticon collective. At the band’s helm is Yoni (all growed up), who—with his candytime-dissonant, singsong-suicide style—has recorded under the name “why?” for the best part of six years. After meeting fellow anticon tribesman Adam “doseone” Drucker in art school and subsequently dropping out, Yoni developed his signature sound over several projects: the lo-fi thought-rap of Greenthink (with doseone), the critically lauded dreamscape crunch of cLOUDDEAD (with dose and anticon DJ/producer odd nosdam), and the hushed bedroom aesthetic of Reaching Quiet (with nosdam). Yoni left the Midwest in 2001, went solo for two why? EPs and one brilliant full-length (2003’s oaklandazulasylum), and now he’s found a permanent home in his Berkeley bandmates.


"Their debut album « From Scratch » is the sound of a Parisian underground dosed up on raging hormones, feverish enthusiasm and amphetamine-quaffing synth-punk beats. Imagine Daft Punk being rugby tackled by the Strokes at the tail end of a two-day rave whilst shrieking about the Sex Pistols glory days and youll have a fair idea of what to expect from a typical Neïmo gig."
