WHY? have allowed the world hear their new album, Mumps, Etc., a week ahead of its release on October 8th via City Slang.

We've already heard the likes of opener 'Jonathan's Hope' and 'Strawberries', but these two tracks only reflect a tiny proportion of what you should expect over the course of the album. Anyone with a passing interest in their previous output, specifically Eskimo Snow, will understand that Yoni Wolf doesn't often write throwaway hits.

Check out the album, and a cool track-by-track guide by Yoni, over at FACT.
