tUnE-yArDs made what she's saying is the final video off last year's great Nikki Nack. It's for the song "Rocking Chair," which features fiddle by Sam Amidon. The video was made by Sarah Pupo, and you can check it out below.
tUnE-yArDs is on tour now and playing two free New York shows this weekend. The first is an amazing double bill with rap eccentrics Shabazz Palaces (who played NYC with Eaters earlier this week) happening Saturday night (8/8) in Prospect Park. That's part of this summer's Celebrate Brooklyn season. Then on Sunday (8/9), she plays one of the concerts at The Surf Lodge in Montauk. Delta Spirit play there the day before her, so this is a pretty great weekend for music fans to spend in the Hamptons.
