As Bloomington counts down the days before Lotus World Music Festival, WFHB’s Jim Manion chats with tUnE-yArDs’ own Nate Brenner.
tUnE-yArDs is fresh, avant-garde, experimental, groovy, poppy, funky — pick a word to describe Merrill Garbus’s band and a reviewer somewhere in the world has already used it. Garbus and her collaborator, bassist (and Bloomington native) Nate Brenner, along with a changing array of bandmates, have found a worldwide audience for “a lovably scrappy, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink aesthetic that is distinctly their own” (SPIN)
Produced and Edited by Jim Manion
