An Aural Explosion: I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life by Tune-Yards

A myriad of musical styles combine into a perfect stew on the new Tune-Yards LP, I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life. Is it art pop? World beat? Lo-fi? Indie pop? A perfect mix of all of the above. New Englander Merrill Garbus is the force behind Tune-Yards and for the last 9 years and now 4 records she has completely blown me away.

My "Tune-Yards" pattern usually goes something like this. I buy her new album. I play it. About half way in I say out loud, "This album is really fucking good." And then I play it over and over again, marveling at how amazing she is. Here is a recent performance of the opening track, "Heart Attack"

My favorite tracks are "Home" and "Colonizer" which I could not find on YouTube. Check both of those out and whatever streaming or download service you use. They are mega!
