Before he turned his WHY? project into fractured indie-pop, Yoni Wolf was making dense, expressive indie-rap under the same name. And on a new album that takes Wolf back in the direction of his roots, Wolf has teamed up with Serengeti — a guy who still makes dense, expressive indie-pop, even when he’s working with Sufjan Stevens. Together, Wolf and Serengeti have made a new concept album called Testarossa. It tells the story of a marriage between a faded garage-rock star and a cocktail waitress. We’ve posted the song “Lunchline,” but now you can listen to the full album below, via Brooklyn Vegan.
Testarossa is out 5/6 on Joyful Noise.
