tUnE-yArDs Delicate ‘Doorstep’ on KEXP

Band show off live looping skills in radio performance

In this live performance filmed at a radio session for KEXP in Seattle, tUnE-yArDs play a gorgeous rendition of "Doorstep," one of the most delicate numbers from their excellent new album w h o k i l l. Frontwoman Merrill Garbus shows off her gorgeous, highly expressive voice as well as her awe-inspiring talent for live looping in this clip, in which she plays and layers several percussive and harmonic parts with remarkable ease. For as much as she's doing on her own, she's not a one-woman band. Bassist Nate Brenner anchors the song with a jazzy, melodic low end and a two-piece horn section provides understated flourishes to Garbus' soulful harmonies.
