Video: tune-yards in Barcelona

Merrill Garbus, giving the bizness

Here’s a cool video from Pitchfork TV of Merrill Garbus, the tune-yards front lady, playing “Wolly Wolly Gong” in front of a crazy looking church in Barcelona. It’s an interesting juxtaposition of football revelers, celebrating Barca’s Champions League victory and Merrill playing her lullaby dwarfed by the church. As she describes it “..like singing a lullaby at the end of the world.”

Check it out here.

    Loved the: “My HS Spanish has really gone out the window.”
    Haunting sound especially with all the horns blowing and eery locale.
