Less than six months after the release of her lauded second album WHOKILL Merrill Garbus seems to be thinking ahead to the next tUnE-yArDs release. At recent performances she’s been busting out a new song, which comes in at a relatively long 8 minutes. Luckily someone at the POP Montreal show managed to catch a video.
