I finally got around to listening to BiRd-BrAiNs, the debut album by one-woman-band tUnE-yArDs that came out in November. Ok I guess I should qualify this… I’ve actually only listened to the first three songs so far because I’ve become so enchanted by the second song on the album, “Sunlight.”
Take a listen:
I especially love the beat in this song.
Merrill Garbus, the mastermind behind tUnE-yArDs, definitely takes a DIY approach to her music. Her album was recorded on a digital voice recorder and assembled using shareware mixing software. It is hectic, weird, challenging, and certainly not for everyone, but I’ve got to say… I think she’ll put on quite an interesting show at The Bell House in Brooklyn in February.
