Tune-Yards - Look at Your Hands

| Keith

Is this the first time we've had Tune-Yards on the Most Important? Looks like it is; that's surprising. Well, she (Merrill Garbus) has a new album out, I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life, and while it can be a hard listen at times, as it's both sonically and thematically confrontational (by design, I think), there are some good cuts. My favorite is "Look at Your Hands" which captures nicely all that Tune-Yards does really well.

Field Music - Count It Up

| Keith

I've been a little bit obsessed with Field Music lately. They have such a fun, quirky sound that hits all the right spots for me. If you've never heard them, I highly recommend checking out 2016's Commontime, particularly "Disappointed" and "The Noisy Days Are Over" - they're hard to explain or categorize, so just listen. Or, just jump into today's Most Important, a terrific new track with a solid message about Brexit.

Club Night - Rally

| Keith
This brief stubborn trek through the seasons
You're undeniably lost without a meaning
You were young once
Racing down to the edge of our house
Questioning it all

Club Night is another interesting band on Tiny Engine's growing roster. I'm not sure how to describe their music, maybe noisy experimental indie pop. Both their recent singles "Well" and today's Most Important, "Rally", sound a bit chaotic, with complex arrangements, frenetic vocals, and dense layers that somehow work really well together. I'm eager to hear more.
