The first single from TV on the Radio's fifth album is a relatively straightforward declaration of heartache from some cerebral artistes – and one of the band's prettiest songs ever. "Will Do" wraps Tunde Adebimpe's falsetto in fuzzy synths, atonal guitars and chamber-group strings, as he pledges his heart to someone who won't be returning the favor any time soon. "I'll be there to take care of you if ever you should decide that you don't want to waste your life in the middle of a lovesick lullaby," Adebimpe sighs, a gangster of love set against excellent atmospheric throb.

    Tune-Yards | 2011

    The opening track to Merrill Garbus’ second album under the Tune-Yards banner (she also plays in the trio Sister Suvi), “Bizness” is a song about relationships that is as colorful as the face paint favored by Garbus both live and in her videos. Disjointed funk bass, skittering African beats, diced-and-sliced horns and Garbus’ dynamic voice, which ranges from playful coos to throat-shredding howls, make “Bizness” reminiscent of another creative medium. “I'd like for them not to be songs as much as quilts or collages or something,” Garbus said.
