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 “ 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.
