Tune in on Saturday, November 24th @ 1:30PM to hear DJ Agapanthus talk with Merrill Garbus about the seriousness of dance music, making the soundtrack for Sorry to Bother You, difficult conversations about whiteness, and how “it is through movement that we will find movement.”
With collaborator Nate Brenner, Merrill Garbus is tUnE-yArDs. Their fourth album, I can feel you creep into my private life, came out at the start of 2018. Thematically, the twelve new songs tackle race, politics, intersectional feminism and environmental prophecies head on. But in the billows of intense subject matter, the album arrives as Tune-Yards’ most immediate and upbeat music yet — this is music to dance to.
