Tune-Yards, James Tillman the Vic October 22
I’ve been marveling over the latest Tune-Yards album, Nikki Nack (4AD), for much of the year—especially since seeing bandleader Merrill Garbus and her comrades bring its songs to DayGlo life this summer at the Pitchfork Music Festival. The music is in constant motion, juggling one idea after another: jump-rope chants, work songs, artsy funk, soul, electro-noise, Afro-pop, and more. »
