On the most recent episode of the British live-music show Later With Jools Holland, tUnE-yArDs came though and played “Water Fountain,” the joyously dazed and rhythmically complex song from their new album Nikki Nack. Even if you don’t love Merrill Garbus’ records, it’s deeply impressive to see her and her bandmates recreating those sounds in person. Robert Plant, a guest on that same episode, was so taken with the band that he charged right over and gushed about how good they were. Strangulated-yelp game recognize strangulated-yelp game. Watch the performance below.
Nikki Nack is out now on 4AD.
