Sub Pop brings another second wave emo act into their fold with this single from Lawrence, Kansas’ The Anniversary for the label’s Singles Club. Although, we see a little bit different version of The Anniversary here. While the band was always known for traversing genres, both a-side “What’s My Name? My Name Is… What!? What!?” and b-side “Tu-Whit To-Whoo” posit the band as a pop-punk act embracing jazzy tones and acoustic flairs. The songs are a farcry from the fastidious, furious anthems they were penning on their debut Designing a Nervous Breakdown, yet still exemplify the band’s keen ability to turn any song into an emotional wreck regardless of the dynamics they’re playing with.
