tune-yards I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life (CD, £9.95)label: 4ad
Officially now a duo, Merrill Garbus is joined by long-time collaborator Nate Brenner. ‘I can feel you creep into my private life’ tackles race, politics, intersectional feminism and environmental prophecies head on. In the billows of intense subject matter the album is their most immediate and upbeat yet - this is Tune-Yards’ music to dance to. The follow-up to 2014’s acclaimed album, ‘Nikki Nack’, much of ‘I can feel you creep into my private life’ was recorded at John Vanderslice’s new Tiny Telephone studio in their hometown of Oakland, CA. To help finish this stunning record, they enlisted mixer Mikaelin ‘Blue’ Bluespruce (Solange, Skepta, Kendrick Lamar) and mastered it in Harlem, NY with Dave Kutch (Jay-Z, Chance The Rapper).
