I saw TuneYards the other week and she (they?) were excellent.

I didn't listen to any of her stuff beforehand on purpose and it was a wonderful surprise. She and her music is original, great and funny too. Her voice is kind of like a yodelling Joan Armatrading. In a good way!

This video starts with another song but jump to 3.23mins to hear 'Hatari' from the start. It really shows how she makes a lot of her sound - using her voice as an instrument, looping it, a couple of drums and a banjo. She really layers everything and builds it. I'm so glad I saw her live!

It's shame the audience in Brussels are so quiet....
