Day seven of my 30 Day Lifestyle Blogging Challenge is about my favorite band of the moment.  This one is tricky because I have so many short term obsessions when it comes to music. Hands down, I have to say that the best band I’ve listened to in weeks is tUnE-yArDs out of Oakland, CA. The band is the music project ofMerrill Garbus. I haven’t seen the live show yet, but when performing live, Garbus creates drum loops on the spot, and layers these with ukulele, voice, and electric bass.

The second tUnE-yArDs album, w h o k i l l, was released on April 19, 2011 (2 days after my birthday)

A single from it, “Bizness”, came out in February 2011. It was produced by Garbus and engineered by Eli Crews at New, Improved Studios in Oakland, California. Check out the music video here:
