tune-yards

Tune-Yards is the project of Merrill Garbus. In 2009, the British musician recorded her debut, Bird-Brains. By using digital recorders and shareware software only, the album boasts charming low-fi aesthetics like Moldy Peaches did. She musically sways between folk influences, pop nuances, homemade beats and R’n’B rhythms. This year, Tune-Yards released her second album, Whokill. She did up the ante production-wise. However, luckily she didn’t lose any of her charm.
