tUnE-yArDs' second album w h o k i l l is one of the year's most startling and original records, a collection of funky, rhythmic, immediately catchy songs that showcase the powerhouse vocal chops of songwriter Merrill Garbus. Garbus sings with incredible authority, bringing great urgency to bangers like "Bizness" and "Gangsta" and a centered sweetness to more gentle tracks like "Powa" and "Doorstep." Like a lot of the best albums, w h o k i l l isn't easy to classify – it's a bit folk, a bit R&B, a bit rock, a bit Afro-pop – but it's entirely compelling. The record will hit stores on April 19th, but you can stream it in full now.
