iji Whatever Will Happen on LP + Download

Iji captivates with their impossibly balanced creation of modern and classic, a blend of Steely Dan cool and General Public pop, Squeezish hooks and Aztec Camera guitar flair. It's like a crash course in 60s pop, 70s avant-garde, 80s new wave and 90s popkid charm, with that unmistakable Puget Sound flavor. Iji truly projects their own brand of pop, nudging the genre into the comfort zone of a punk community, embracing a desire for rack-a-chack, ethereal and naivist sounds often unexplored by contemporaries.
Zach Burba, the founder of iji, is what you might call a lifer. Iji is always in a state of ‘to be continued,’ in the way that a journeyman is always and perpetually transitioning into the master. They’ve put out numerous albums, singles, cassettes, and splits over the past 10 years; toured coast to coast playing DIY venues and houses where restrictions don’t apply. This type of DIY pop is a lifestyle; it’s Kokopelli roaming the countryside sharing a song in exchange for a roof and a bowl of soup.
On Whatever Will Happen, iji has whipped a notebook full of travel poems into a full length American experimental highway pop opus. The band’s eleventh or twelfth album is the first one recorded at Anacortes, Washington’s “The Unknown” Music Studio with a solid line-up, the Seattle underground music scene’s best players. Jake Jones and Curran Foster from Sick Sad World, Will Murdoch from Pill Wonder, Evan Easthope from Neighbors, Erin Birgy of Mega Bog, plus a handful of jazz horn players and inspired back-up singers. 

Whatever Will Happen speeds past quiet beaches with soft-rock wind in the hair, through mountain passes with windows-down-power-pop, into seedy cities with free-jazz flavor and shameless disco grooves.
