Californian trio WHY? are keeping to a fearsome release schedule this year.

This month’s Sod In The Seed EP is to be followed swiftly by the Mumps, etc LP, due for release on October 8.

The three-piece have now released a track from the album for free download. Opener ‘Jonathan’s Hope’ is a twinkling, harmonious affair, its brief multi-tracked chorale giving way to a sultry half-time slump. It suggests a continuation of the sunnier vibe of Sod In The Seed; although the press release warns that its “measured optimism” is to be “leveled by the songs that follow”.

You can download ‘Jonathan’s Hope’ below. Mumps, etc is due for release on October 8.
