WHY? Share “By Torpedo Or Crohn’s (Dntel Remix)” On Brooklyn Vegan | On Tour This Fall | Alopecia Ten Year Anniversary Reissue Out 8/17/2018 On Joyful Noise Recordings

“The inscrutable indie hip-hop group returns with an uncontainable record that defies genre and expectations at nearly every turn.”
– Pitchfork“It’s his lyrics, brutally honest and often desperate, that elevate Alopecia from curiosity to conquest.”
– Village Voice“The irresistibly feel-good music and subversive lyrics of “Fatalist Palmistry” (“Your cat clawed out my eyes while I was distracted by your smile”) would make the song a hit single in some parallel universe.”
– Variety
