WHY? – “The Water You Walk” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Michael Nelson / December 10, 2012 - 1:41 pm

Yoni Wolf’s WHY? dropped a new LP, Mumps, Etc., in October — we shared album tracks “Jonathan’s Hope” and “Strawberries” in the months leading up to the release, but today we’ve got a special treat: The B-side to new 7″ single “Waterlines” is “The Water You Walk,” a Christmas song. I don’t think you have to listen to it in that context to enjoy it, but considering how few decent new Christmas songs are produced (compared to the insane amount of Christmas music we’re forced to endure), I think it’s a triumph in that regard. Listen.

Mumps, Etc. is out now via Anticon.
