The performances of Merrill Garbus—better known as the eclectically capitalized tUnE-yArDs—are clattering, rapturous affairs, in which her loops of percussion and voice build into ecstatic, rhythmic releases. With a crack backing band and a genuinely joyous live show, Garbus is practically a force of nature. NED LANNAMANN
