tUnE-yArDs: Nikki Nack
Buy! - (4AD)
The third album from Oakland’s Merrill Garbus (aka tUnE-yArDs) is an inventive set of visceral, rhythm-driven avant-pop with consistently strong, brightly melodic songs featuring a densely layered and looped sound using a variety of colorful instrumentation, including an assortment of live and synthetic drums along with lots of homemade percussion fleshing out Haitian Vodou, African and other exotic rhythms underneath her elastic vocals and probing lyrics about self-doubt and the trials of the creative process. 5/2/2014 - Don Yates
