New England native Merrill Garbus returns, with her first album for two years, ‘Whokill’, the follow up to her highly successful and absolutely original debut, ‘BiRd-BrAiNs’. This single was released a few weeks ago, and it passed us by at the time, but having just received a copy of the new album, which is issued in the UK next Monday, we are starting to warm to this highly innovative act. Scratch that – we LOVE IT.
After a few listens, it’s becoming clear that the addition of bassist Nate Brenner brings a new dimension to the sound, without foregoing the trademark confessional feel of previous recordings. This is a beautifully recorded album, painstakingly created with detailed attention given to each sound, and the results will only serve to grow the fan base of this remarkable talent.
