Fall With Tune-Yards

Tune-Yards showed love to fans on both sides of the Atlantic today with new excursions added in the U.S. and Europe. The music project headed up by Merrill Garbus will headline its way through the States in October.

Garbus handles drums, vocals, keys and ukulele, while Nate Brenner shares vocal duties and takes care of synths and bass. The duo is joined on tour by a few backing musicians.
