WHY? releasing new EP, playing Lincoln Hall
WHY?'s Sod in the Seed
WHY? are set to release their new EP, Sod in the Seed, on August 14 via Anticon/City Slang. Download the album opener/title track at the top of this post and/or stream it below. They'll also be releasing a follow-up to 2009's Eskimo Snow LP in the fall.
In support of Sod in the Seed, WHY? will be heading out on tour in late-August with a slew of Anticon openers. They'll visit Chicago's Lincoln Hall on September 9 with Doseone, Serengeti, and Jel (DJ set). Tickets go on sale this Friday (6/29) at noon CST.
As mentioned, Serengeti's new LP, C.A.R., hits stores on July 31 via Anticon. You've heard the album track "Amnesia," and now you can check out another called "Talk to Me." It's available for download at the top of this post/to stream below. He'll open for Delicate Steve at Subterranean on July 12 and will play Lincoln Hall on July 13 with Hannibal Buress, Kyle Kinane, Rockie Fresh, Jel, and DJ Tony Trimm. Tickets for the Lincoln Hall show are still available.
Jel (aka Jeffrey Logan)'s July 13th appearance at Lincoln Hall is smack in the middle of his run supporting Sleigh Bells (who play Pitchfork Fest on July 14). He'll return to Chicago on August 27 to play a FREE show at the Empty Bottle with DJ Abilities, Zavala, and Crushcon7.
