Glenda the good witch and all the munchkins of fairyland join in with Zap Mama’s cousin and a sledgehammer on this moderately wacky kitchen sink creation from enormously gifted hot-potato soul maven and New England native, Merrill Garbus.
Outside of wild creativity, we’re not quite sure what to expect, but we are eagerly anticipating hosting tUnEyArDs for a live Luxury Wafers Session next week!
Recently signed to 4AD, Garbus sweetly posts access to her record, BiRd-BrAiNs at her website HERE.
The tracklist: For You, Sunlight, Lions, Hatari, News, Jamaican, Jumping Jack, Little Tiger, Safety, Fiya, Synonynonym.
BiRd-BrAiNs is substantially rad. This girl’s outta control over-the-top knowing no boundaries and souled in a deep funky root. Of the eclectic bunch of tunes, Hatari stands out brightly showcasing Garbus’ innate groove and amazingly hearty voice. News, light and peppy, hits humorously dead-on – a playfully empowering anthem. Plush ukelele decorates what turns into a lurk-rap Safety. Listening now, I can’t get enough. Thank you, world, for making Merrill Garbus a beautifully fearless artiste.
