Why? first came to my attention as one third of the group Clouddead, possibly one of the most original hip hop, if you can call them hip hop, groups in the last 10 years.
He released his debut solo album, “Oaklandazulasylum” in 2003 on the Anticon label. His solo work leans more towards alternative rock and weirded out folk music, than it does to hip hop. This sound was further more explored on his 2005 album “Elephant Eyelash”, the featured track being one of my favourite tracks from the album.
“Gemini (Birthday song)”
