Experimental hip-hop collective WHY? are gearing up to drop Mumps, Etc later this year, so they’ve treated us to this choice cut from their record. “Jonathan’s Hope” actually references mumps and graphic T-shirts among other things, all wrapped up in minimal instrumentals. A short but perfect chorus will pull you in, making “Jonathans Hope” an unlikely earworm.
The Mumps, Etc LP is out on October 9 via Anticon, so stay tuned for more from WHY?.
