Fresh Track: tUnE-yArDs “We’re All Water” (Yoko Ono Cover)
I’ve been a staunch supporter of Merrill Garbus’s experimental vocal project tUnE-yArDs since the group’s 2009 debut BiRd-BrAiNs. The band’s sophomore LP W H O K I L L earned a mention near the top of my “Best Albums” list from 2011. Yesterday, tUnE-yArDs released a limited edition 10″ featuring covers of Yoko Ono’s “We’re All Water” and “Warrior Woman.” The release is the second in a series of 10″ singles featuring covers of material from Ono’s back catalog. 100% of the proceeds from the vinyl and digital downloads will be donated to Rockaway Waterfront Alliance, which is working on relief efforts surrounding Hurricane Sandy’s devastating impact to the East Coast last year. The limited edition, etched vinyl is available for $20, and digital downloads of the track will run you $2. Listen to a snippet of “We’re All Water” below, and spread the word about a worthy cause.
