Tune-Yards - Bird-Brains

BiRd-BrAiNs, the debut album by Tune-Yards, was described by Stereogum as a self-contained Sublime Frequencies compilation, jumping between blues, African tunes, shiny reggae-esque sprawls, and lo-fi folk”. Merrill Garbus assembled it with a staunch DIY aesthetic, recording it with a digital voice recorder then using shareware mixing software to produce it.
