tUnE-yArDs - KEXP Session

New Music, VideosjeremyComment

Merrill Garbus' tUnE-yArDs project just released one of the best records of the year so far in Nikki Nack. And now, to our glorious benefit, she has done a KEXP session. The video includes four of the best songs on the record, including "Water Fountain" and "Real Thing", and finds Merrill and bassist Nate Brenner accompanied by passionate backup singers and percussionists. It's a little different than the extremely loop-centric one- or two-person performances Garbus was once known for. But it's nonetheless a gleaming delight to see the group perform these weird, catchy, sunny pop songs in the KEXP studio.

Watch it above, and if you haven't listened to Nikki Nack yet, go do that, ya weirdo.
