tUnE-yArDs is the singular musical project of New England native Merrill Garbus. Possessing an expansive sound that marries folk ingenuity with the pop sensibility of an R&B siren, Garbus recently dropped her third full length Nikki Nack this past May. The release was at least partially inspired by two diametrically opposed elements: a life changing trip to Haiti and the classic kid’s TV program Pee Wee’s Playhouse. The result is something heavy that retains a sense of fun. Download “Water Fountain” from Nikki Nack and learn more about tUnE-yArDs at her Official Website, “Like” her on Facebook, and follow her on Twitter.
