tUnE-yArDs Live From The Newport Folk Festival

July 30th, 2012

Episode 355 of 429 episodes

tUnE-yArDs' strange, joyous concoction is wild, rhythmic, layered and swirling with surprises. Leader Merrill Garbus forms a cut-up collage of coos, howls and bold statements of purpose, but her live shows fan out into epic rave-ups, complete with a pair of saxophonists. tUnE-yArDs performs here as part of the 2012 Newport Folk Festival, recorded live on Sunday, July 29 in Newport, R.I.
