Description

Merrill Garbus' music draws from an eclectic variety of sources and utilizes elements such as loop pedals, ukulele, vocals and lo-fi percussion. It's been four years since she's released any music. Her 2011 album, Whokill, was originally titled Women Whokill, and was meant to feature an all-female cast of collaborators. There's definitely a feminist and queer-friendly quality to some of the early figures Garbus found inspiring--Patti Smith, Ani DiFranco and Nina Simone. Her new single, "Look at Your Hands" is a 1980s throwback production coming from wanting the vocals to sound robotic to counter the sincerity of her lyrics.
