Tune For Tuesday: tUnE yArDs

Having blown up the indie spaces last year, Merrill Garbus - or her more resoundingly celebrated musical vehicle, tUnE yArDs - will be familiar to many of you already. Nonetheless, a quality free tune that nestles into those summer playlists rather well should be welcomed with open arms... 

... and here we have just such a gem...

Whether the charm is to be found in the eccentric, soul diva-meets-Bj√∂rk nuances to the vocal, the shimmering undertow of the arrangement, or the addictive repetition of the chorus, Bizness shows off the glorious melange of styles that Garbus weaves and loops to great effect throughout 'w h o k i l l'.  

To take things a step further, you could investigate the curious meander 'Es-so' or the raucous stomp of 'Gangsta', either of which would add a special flavour to your summer listening that few others could achieve.
