why - oaklandazuasylum (2003)
why? is the bastard son of indie hip-hop label Anticon, but it is anything but. I can't quite pinpoint their sound, cuz they just seem to go everywhere without going too far, really great stuff. The opening track "ferris wheel" sounds like a Jeff Magnum b-side, then they seem to go into some nonsensical lo-fi electronica and some indie-folk here & there. Also the album cover is one of my fav's, highly recomended for the eccentric lot.
