Merrill Garbus, the multi-tasking talent behind tUnE-yArDs , appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night with a special version of her track Gangsta , from the album w h o k i l l . Throbbing, soaring and then wavering, the song dips and dives in this performance, at times clanging through your consciousness with insistence and clarity, and at other times sulkily dwindling away. Watch in awe as Garbus shifts between controlling drum loops, leaping through octaves and providing her own backing vocals – it’s enough to make you dizzy.
+4AD released ‘w h o k i l l’ on the 18th April 2011. +
