In2008, the group added bassist Austin Brown to their lineup, making them a four-piece once again. In their arrangements, WHY? leans moretoward folk and indie rock, as opposed to the more hip hop styling of their label-mates. Their lyrics also tend to be very abstract, focusing moreon imagery than on any particular story. WHY? is also a member of the Anticon collective of Oakland, California. « hide
