tUnE-yArDs: w h o k i l l
The Guardian: The line crystallises the mood of her second album as Tune-Yards: it's tart, bright, forthright; fiercely feminist in outlook; utterly self-possessed.
Rolling Stone: whokill overflows with hip-hop, reggae, Afrobeat and funky noise freakouts -- plus ukulele riffs, fluttering doo-wop vocals and what sounds like a percussion orchestra composed of pots and pans.
Spin: Adding bassist Nate Brenner, fancier mics, and augmented sonics, this sophomore album cleans up without sacrificing charm.
Pitchfork: This unguarded, individualistic expression encourages strong identification in listeners, so don't be surprised if this record earns Garbus a very earnest and intense cult following.
