music crush: tUnE-yArDs

the unique sounds of the new tUnE-yArDs album 'w h o k i l l' have been floating around in the treehouse lately.

tUnE-yArDs is described as "the lo-fi experimental folk project of merrill garbus."

'bizness' is the song which first introduced us to her music...

the music on this album has a cool sound that kevwrex and i agree is difficult to define. it's a mixture of jazzy-world-pop-modern-folk, and we both find it refreshingly original.

download the song 'bizness' for free via the website or check out the NPR interview if you are interested in hearing more tUnE-yArDs.
