DIY albums have always been and are still, more than ever, the way forward.
Tune-Yards’ is Merrill Garbus. Her debut album, Bird Brains, was recorded on a digital tape recorder and then mixed on Garageband and is easily one of the best albums released this year. No slick production needed. And guess what – she’s just finished touring with the wonderfully incredible Dirty Projectors. Our sources tell us that she is a joy to witness live.
