WHY? are releasing an expanded edition of last year’s Moh Lhean, in the form of a vinyl 7″ box set. It’s out February 2 via Joyful Noise and there are eight singles, each on different colored vinyl, with the original album track on one side and a remix on the flip. Open Mike Eagle, Baths, Nick Diamonds, Paper Tiger, Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier, Kishi Bashi, Astronautalis, and Ó & Bellows (who cover “The Barely Blur”). We’ve got the premiere of the Baths remix of “Easy,” which puts more of a synthpop spin on the song while maintaining the elegiac feel of the original. The remix premieres in this post and you can listen to that, along with the Nick Diamonds remix of “Proactive Evolution” and all of Moh Lhean, below.

Open Mike Eagle, who released Brick Body Kids Still Daydream last year, is opening East Coast dates of WHY?’s winter tour, including the NYC stop at Music Hall of Williamsburg on February 5 (tickets). Updated dates are listed below.
