New Why? Dodos Leak

This WHY? track was recorded during the same sessions as Eskimo Snow, but for some reason wasn’t released until now. It’s a ballad from the group known for its uptempo hip-hop backbeats that get bodies moving. This latest tune, “This Blackest Purse,” is anything but uptempo. Some have even labeled it as “emo.” It is certainly lamenting and one of the darkest WHY? tunes to date, but emo might be a bit much. I would use the phrase Emotionally Charged. The tune showcases Yoni Wolf’s singing that, at points, is almost comperable to the singing of indie counterpart The National. That in and of itself should say enough about the depth of the tune.

This Blackest Purse – WHY?

In other news, the Dodos’ new album has reportedly leaked. I’m trying my best to get on that. In the meantime, stream the album for free at this site that’s popped up to combat the leak…The album was slated for release September 15th and it’s titled Time To Die
