Song Of The Week #48

Today’s earworm:

Bizness – tUnE-yArDs


Tune-yards is the musical prowess of New England lo-fi songwriter Merrill Garbus. After releasing her 2009 debut BiRd-BrAiNs (recorded via handheld voice recorder) to a wide pallet of positive praise, Garbus managed to sign up to record label 4AD (to which the Pixies were signed) and afterwards launch her sophomore LP WhoKill in 2011.

Seeing as how the track showcases some severe African influence via robust and bold singing coupled with big thunder-drum booms and tribal beats, it probably doesn’t come off as a surprise that Garbus spent her college years in Kenya. To study pirates. Instead however, she chose to bless us with tUnE-yArDs – a group that’s as fun to listen to as it is to type out (yeah, not really, but what they do in quirky spelling they  make up for with fantastic music).

Bizness is the sixth track on WhoKill.
