By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 5 May 2014
Format: Audio CD
Three albums in and Merrill Garbus shows little sign of compromising
her hand-made, rough-and-ready schtick. 'Nikki Nack' is every bit as
gloriously unpredictable as her first two outings 'Bird-Brain' (2009)
and 'Whokill' (2011). Ms Garbus' box of sonic tricks brims over with
joyously bouncy beats and abrasive vocal harmonies. The energy is
addictive and the words are often very, very funny indeed.

Single 'Water Fountain', with its rattling African rhythms, had me
gasping for breath and laughing like a Wolf possessed; so too the
jazzy click-and-shuffle of 'Hey Life' which demonstrates, just in case
we hadn't noticed already, what a very fine singer she truly is.There
are so many sonic treats in the set that it's hard to pick a winner
but the stripped back funk of 'Wait For A Minute', with its beautifully
sinuous melody and wasp-in-a-bottle synth licks, comes as close as any.

Quirky. Curiously Soulful. Musically Intriguing. 'Nikki Nack' has got the lot.

Highly Recommended.

Though it’s fashionable to blame incestuous parts of the reviewing community for showering praise here when the music-buying public think it’s better deserved there, there often exists good reasons to explain the gulf between the critically lauded and the commercially successful. Foremost of these is that the critic, in most cases, is in his position because he is a music fan – one that wants to love new music as much, if not more so, than the next man. And, in this dual role, he will have heard a lot of music – more so, on average, than that next man. This is not carte blanche to trust his taste implicitly of course. The unbiased critic however is, at the very least, unlikely to put his weight behind the ordinary. He’s already heard that a 1000 times before. He’s looking for stand-outs and, boy, has colourful weirdo Merrill Garbus done so consistently since her arrival in 2009.

Nikki Nack is Garbus’s third LP and, again, it’s a rather wonderful pop album, but, as her career to date has shown, the newcomer won’t be given an easy ride for hers is a very particular brand of melting-pot future-pop. Where the similarly enlightened Claire Boucher of Grimes drew heavily from K-pop on her spectacular Visions LP, here Garbus digs deeply into African-American history, decorating her multi-tracked, kitchen-sink madness with celebratory vocal snippets that originated on the open savannah before being dragged to the cotton fields and then into the gospel harmonies.

Strong, hand-clapped rhythms such as those that feature alongside clipped R&B in the killer “Real Thing” only strengthen this position, while the rootsy “Rocking Chair” and its fiddle are as traditional as you’re ever gonna get on a tUnE-yArDs record. Nikki Nack is not simple genre tourism however – it’s personal.

This is an album of 10,000 different ideas coming at you one after the other. For a few listens it's a bit overwhelming, but every time you hear it you notice something different so it keeps you coming back. The production is excellent so if you've got a good hi-fi you'll be well rewarded. I'm currently listening to it as the perfect antidote to the Eurovision Song Contest, :-)

One of the top five contemporary female composer/musicians alive (2015) who is producing innovative music. Unlike frauds who use auto-tune (almost every manufactured charting pop artiste alive today), Merrill Garbus (founder of tUnE-yArDs), possesses a fantastic singing voice which is used to perfection in her unique art pop compositions. This, her third album, should have have been made a year from publication as it lacks some of the genius running through WHOKILL. Still, being one of only a handful of brilliant female artists who have a real and original talent, it would be churlish to complain.

Merrill Garbus, the mastermind behind tUnE-yArDs, has always been capable of capturing lightning in a bottle. Possessing a blatantly powerful voice, a cut-paste production style and a vast array of sounds, she sticks out like a sore thumb. With Nikki Nack, Garbus has refined the rugged qualities of previous albums Bird Brains and Whokill, creating a more accessible beast without sacrificing her off-kilter pop eccentricities.

From the bombardment of drums and keys twenty seconds into opener “Find a New Way”, the listener is hurled into wave upon wave of sound and ever-shifting time signatures. tUnE-yArDs delivers a tribal ruckus, chanting infectious hooks among skittering drumbeats. Other tracks follow suit, including standout single “Water Fountain”. Arguably the catchiest song tUnE-yArDs has conceived to date, Garbus flaunts a comical, childlike charm as she roars through an irresistible chorus, valiantly harmonising amid multiple layers of her voice to a glorious climax.

As Nikki Nack gallops forward, Garbus gradually adds extra ingredients to her melting pot of creativity. The r'n'b flavoured “Real Thing” bears similarities to Destiny’s Child and lyrically addresses the emptiness of fame, while synth-laden “Wait for a Minute” is comparable to the likes of Little Dragon and Dirty Projectors. The tracks are much more subdued than the tantrums of noise exuded elsewhere, and surprisingly Nikki Nack offers many delicate moments in addition to this. “Look Around” and “Time of Dark” present an entirely different side of tUnE-yArDs, and provide ample breathing room between her energetic output.

Unfortunately, Nikki Nack does suffer from some unimaginative spots.
