Boomkat Product Review:
The latest missive from Anticon's folk-rock-psych-hop heavyweight Why? (now a four piece band fronted by main-man Yoni Wolf), 'Elephant Eyelash' seems to be the record that was long threatened but oddly elusive. Featuring guest spots from a good chunk of the Anticon stud-farm, 'Elephant Eyelash' is a genre gumbo that logically should result in a 10 mile aural f*ck-up... but doesn't. The opening song 'Crushed Bones' is a fine example; what initially seems a waterlogged folk flutter is incrementally beefed up to emotional-strength, before it spirals wildly into a polemical crunch, over which Wolf delivers his nasal proclamations of "London where the sirens yelp like a helpless Dog with its jaw stepped on". It might not sound much written down, but on record it has an indefinable force. Similarly, 'Yo Yo Bye Bye' is a vast and operatic slab of psych-hop that pitches skywards in a flurry of Mercury Rev-meets-Doseone references, hitting its mark head on before shifting gear on album highlight 'Rubber Traits' with a snowfall of vitiman-C piano chords and the oddly moving diatribe of "Unfold an origami death mask, And cut my DNA with rubber traits, Pull apart the double helix like a wishbone, Always be working on a suicide note". If Stephen Malkmus had shirked his Anglophile fixation and gone for a career in hip-hop, this is probably what it would have sounded like.
