tune-yards are amazing!
The unique rhythms and beats in this song are such an awesome part about what makes tune-yards a killer artist. Can't wait for another complete album, but this single will definitely hold me over for awhile….! Also, pretty cool stuff that they are collabing with Yoko. Good stuff!
Lively, warm, and a fitting tribute for a worthy cause.
Without the Yoko Ono endorsement I would never have listened to tUnE-yArDs
Whenever pitchforkmedia brands something the Best New Music on their blog after years of being burned by over-hyped bands like Tapes n' Tapes, Art Brut and the Hold Steady, I regard their recommendations with skepticism. So Who Kill was released to universal acclaim and I refused to read the reviews and listen to the album. But when video footage of Merrill Garbus performing a Yoko Ono cover live in Iceland was posted online, I bought the album immediately. I could not stop forcing the album upon my friends, I saw her live a couple of months later and still obsessively look for follow up release information and any additional touring details. All because of her cover of "We Are All Water." There are some minor differences between the live version and the studio version, the thrill of seeing tUnE-yArDs live is that the audience gets to witness her construct the song by looping percussion and vocals so that build up is gone. In the live footage Merrill screams and Yoko Ono makes a guest appearance at the end, while the studio b-side is a remixed Yoko Ono track worth investigating if you have an open mind.
