WHY? Debuts At #3 On Billboard Alternative Albums Chart | Starting World Tour On 3/16 | 'Moh Lhean' Out Now Via Joyful Noise
LISTEN & SHARE: WHY? - 'Moh Lhean'
 
"Early Moh Lhean singles “This Ole King” and “Proactive Evolution” (featuring mewithoutYou’s Aaron Weiss) capture Wolf’s willingness to seize life at every turn, no matter its ugliness. Meanwhile other tracks like “Easy”, “One Mississippi”, and even instrumental “The Longing Is All” seem to teach the art and importance of letting go."
- Consequence Of Sound

"'This Ole King,' which features some very cool displays of 360-degree video technology, longtime fans will find Wolf still knows how to bring the strange."
- The 405

"(One Mississippi) It’s a song about not overly dwelling on the dark, with their glitchy production style and some tasteful whistling ultimately giving its initial mournful vibe an uplifting touch."
- Brooklyn Vegan

“Proactive Evolution” layers dense imagery over soft flutes and arpeggios, building into a track that’s surprisingly lush given indie-rap kingpin Yoni Wolf’s penchant for deadpan delivery."
-SPIN

“This Ole King” seems to be an exhale of sunshine — like one of those “light boxes” for impending Seasonal Affective Disorder." - Stereogum
