tUnE-yArDs TO PERFORM AT PALLADIUM RIGA THIS FALL

On November 18th Palladium Riga concert hall will host the first Baltic performance of US singer-songwriter, vocalist and percussionist Tune-Yards (stylised - tUnE-yArDs) aka Merrill Garbus. With her unique talent of looping sounds and rhythms into punchy anthems and her playful childlike delivery, Garbus creates a truly memorable live experience that sounds like nothing else. Tickets are available from July 2nd. Tickets starting from EUR 15.

tUnE-yArDs third full-length May release Nikki Nack (2014) has brought Garbus substantial global critical acclaim, distinguishing tUnE-yArDs as one of today’s most significant alternative pop acts. NME calls Nikki Nack tUnE-yArDs best work yet, with Rolling Stone proclaiming Garbus to be “[…] an innovator in for the long haul”. Pitchfork adds that her inventive and authentic ideas are the driving force behind tUnE-yArDs impressive recordings and live shows. Along with multi-instrumental lead vocalist Garbus, the tUnE-yArDs project also features electric bass player and co-writer Nate Brenner, with several touring members usually accompanying the duo on tours.

tUnE-yArDs first record Bird Brains (2009) generated considerable amount of attention largely due to its recording style - Merrill practically created the album by herself, archiving everything with an old tape recorder and refining it with a trial version of a music editing programme. The record outlined the project’s main stylistic features, which have since become part of tUnE-yArDs house style – a mix of folk, experimental and world music, enhanced by Garbus’s unique vocals.

In 2011 tUnE-yArDs released their second album Whokill, which was also met with sizable critical acclaim. Renowned music reviewers such as Rolling Stone, New York Times, Spin Magazine, Pitchfork and others placed both the album as well as its singles Bizness and Gangsta amongst the best records of 2011.

Tickets are available from July 2nd. Tickets starting from EUR 15.
