ALARM’s 50 (+5) Favorite Songs of 2012

Why?: Mumps, Etc.Why?: “Jonathan’s Hope” from Mumps, Etc. (Anticon, 10/9/12)

Why?: “Jonathan’s Hope”

On Mumps, Etc., Why? keeps rewriting its own hip-hop history, transforming yet again with an expanse of orchestrated accents and the addition of Josiah Wolf’s wife, Liz Wolf. With harmonized humming, minimalist piano, harp plucking, and a gurgling bass line, the wide variety of “Jonathan’s Hope” makes for truly compelling listening.
