Concert preview: Tune-Yards at the Newport

Staff Writer

It all comes at you at once, and it is your responsibility to sort it out: Flinty, organic and chirpy sounds and textures, a fluid and sometimes abrasive staccato singing voice, face paint, bright and patterned clothing, stray strips of fabric, an avian tinge to absolutely everything. I'm imaging this will be quite the sensory overload. Tune-Yards is the music project of Merrill Garbus, and it. Is. Vibrant. Garbus uses synths, drum loops, ukulele, tambourine, bass, anything, to create her futuristic tribal-political hymns.
