Vinyl LP pressing housed in hand-screened recycled jacket with lyric sheet puzzle and digital download access. 2009 debut album from Canadian singer/songwriter Merrill Garbus (AKA tUnE-yArDs). The album was recorded on a digital voice recorder and assembled using shareware mixing software. Garbus' primary instrument is ukulele, to this she adds her own field recordings- the sound outside her window, a child being asked about blueberries, indistinct creaks and clatter- along with occasional percussion that seems to consist of whatever nearby could be smacked or shaken. Some songs loop these elements into mini-epics that bring to mind an early, crude version of Juana Molina's one-woman-band aesthetic. Sonic.
