Tune-Yards - Nikki-Nack [LP] (Clear Red Colored Vinyl, limited to 5000)
tUnE-yArDs' third album nikki nack sees her enlist producers to
help her achieve new heights. Contributions from Malay (Frank
Ocean, Alicia Keys, Big Boi) and John Hill (Rihanna, Shakira,
M.I.A.) enhance tUnE-yArDs' signature sound.
A record that could only have been made by its creator, at heart it's
heavy yet still retains a sense of fun. Experimentation is still key
for tUnE-yArDs. Where the loop pedal and the saxophone were
main components of the fi rst and second record respectively, it's
the drum that takes center stage here, augmented by greater use
of synth and Nate's growing prowess as a bassist.
With it's its jump-rope-chant title, the brilliantly playful nikki nack
continues the tUnE-yArDs story gloriously.
