Merrill Garbus AKA tUnE-yArDs is preparing to release her follow-up to 2009's great release BiRd BrAiNs. Its titled w h o k i l l, and the new single, 'Bizness' is off it. Its not a new track per se - it has been a live staple for almost two years now, and one of the live favourites - but its great to revisit it, and have it in physical form. Garbus is still on song here, so her new album will come with a fair bit of expectation around here on Planet Masala (see our live review from Cargo last year here).
w h o k i l l comes out April 19th on 4AD.
(NB - I only found out today that Garbus was the lead vocalist and instrumentalist of Sister Suvi, who are sadly with us no more. A bit slow on the uptake there...)
