Episode Summary

tUnE-yArDs - Merrill Garbus
"tUnE-yArDs is the experimental music project of Oakland-based musician and former Sister Suvi member Merrill Garbus. Garbus, who also spent time teaching singing in Kenya, began writing and performing under the tUnE-yArDs moniker in 2006. The first tUnE-yArDs album, Bird-Brains, was originally self-released and recorded by Garbus using a digital voice recorder and assembled using mixing software over a two year period. In 2009, tUnE-yArDs signed to 4AD, who re-released the remastered version of Bird-Brains, with bonus tracks. The Guardian gave the album five stars, calling her \"the find of the year.\" tUnE-yArDs also went on tour opening for the Dirty Projectors, where her live shows gained much attention. Using her ukulele, loop pedals, multiple mics, a snare drum and her unique voice, tUnE-yArDs began gripping audiences everywhere. In 2010, tUnE-yArDs performed with Yoko Ono and the Plastic Ono Band in Los Angeles and again at the Iceland Airwaves festival.moreless
