Song of the Day – “Doorstep” tUnE-YarDs

3 Jun

Merrill Garbus, made you look.

It is an absolutely beautiful summer Friday here in Boulder, CO. And what goes better with a summer day than good music and a tasty beverage. Today’s song “Doorstep” is by the amazing tUnE-YarDs, lead by Merril Garbus. I just adore her voice/singing style/persona so much I don’t really know what else to say.  “Doorstep” is driven by a stuttering drum part, and clattering percussion as Merril’s voice bounces playfully along, blending in and out of rich harmonies with herself. also the bridge/break down section feels right out of a mo-town classic. so basically i’m telling you to do two things. #1 listen to doorstep and #2 check out the new tUnE-YarDs album W H O K I L L .
