If you can’t wait until 18th April to listen to “whokill” (on 4AD) from start to finish, this is your chance. Thanks to The Guardian and NPR, we can now savour tUnE-yArDs’ second album. This time, Merrill Garbus decided to forget about the lo-fi scraps of “BiRd-BrAiNs” (2009) and go into a proper studio, accompanied by some of musician friends. As a result, the new compositions sound fuller and brighter, maintaining some of the sharpness of her early and more austere repertoire while at the same time incorporating new instrumental details with a flavour of heavy and eccentric funk, African pop and cosmic rock. But no matter how much we talk about these tracks, the world of tUne-yArDs is a hard one to pigeonhole. So the best thing you can do is press play and listen for yourself. San Miguel Primavera Sound 2011 takes place on 25 and 29 May at Poble Español, and from 26 to 28 May at Parc del Forum in Barcelona. Tickets are on sale here.
