Like you, I listen to lots of new music. There’s so much good music about, and I feel blessed to hear these amazingly talented people doing stuff I can only dream about.

Merrill Garbus is that rare thing: Genuinely original, striking, unique, and charming.
I’ve been a fan since her days in the experimental vocal band Sister Suvi. They’ve split up now, which is probably a good thing, because Merrill has gone on to become tUnE-YaRdS, released a home-recorded album called Bird-Brains, gathered a huge and loyal following, and got herself signed to 4AD.
Enough talk. Click on the video below.
