Tune-Yards

"w h o k i l l points in a thousand directions and gallops off toward them all at full tilt. It brings in African vocalisations, and moments of wild animal violence, and street riots, and intimate loved-up louchery. It co-opts sampling to create orchestral arrangements out of a single voice and polymorphic rhythms that seem off-kilter but then, with the addition of real drums and bass (the latter courtesy of new co-writing partner Nate Brenner), create complex, beguiling and intense rhythms. It is astonishing.

Rhythm section aside, so much of this is down to the one-woman volcano of ideas that is Garbus, the tUnE-yArDs conceptualist who once said her raison d'etre was to "get people's attention or die". She drew designs on her face, she made songs, she toured. Safe to say, she now has attention..." [MusicOMH]

Tune-Yards played the first of two sold out shows at Manhattan club Le Poisson Rouge last night (9/19) with The Suite Unraveling. She does it again tonight (9/20) with Prussia.

Setlist? Was it pretty much the same show/songs as they did during the May tour?

Got out around midnight. Opening song was"My County". "You Yes You" was the last song. All but three or four were from Whokill.

Really satisfying music.

Unfortunate repeated feedback.

Still great.

Tuneyards is a tank who uses a loop pedal. Boring stuff. Wouldn't be boring if Spin Doctors were in charge of this boring drivel.

I split before she came on. I'm not sure if it was Mr. T guarding the VIP section or the weak $16 vodka sodas. But Poisson Rouge feels very 80s Wall Street to me. I kept looking for Puffy Combs.
