Honestly, each time I hear another track from Tune-Yards, it’s just a blatant reminder of how hauntingly unique Merril Garbus’ voice is. It’s been a busy week for the Californian singer/songwriter, having just released a wonderfully dazzling, paint ridden video for lead single “Bizness” from her forthcoming w h o k i l l.
