Laneia’s Team Pick: Listen to Tune-Yards

The only time I’ll ever send you to MySpace is for super awesome music — promise! Get your ass over there and listen to Merrill of the band tUnE-YaRdS sing “FIYA” and “NEWS” (and others, of course, but those two are #sogreat). Love this line: “I’ve got news for you, honey / I get pregnant with birds that sing / prettier than you”
