Thanks to my sister, I could not stop playing a couple of songs this weekend. I don’t know much about Tune-Yards, but I can say the music is fun and funky and Merrill Garbus’ voice amazes me. Not going to lie, when I found out it was a woman singing…I was a little blown away. But that’s why I love it! Unique voices can usually seal the deal for me, especially when it comes to women. I’m not one for Christina Aguilera belting or Colbie Caillat whispering. I need something different. And this does it for me.
The song above is a particular favorite, for it’s strong beats and passion (and the video is fun and colorful!).
Below is a different sort of passion…a bit sensual, funky, and slow.
