Tune Yards release new single "Water Fountain"

The new Tune Yards single, "Water Fountain," just hit the interwebs, and it's every bit as wild, eclectic, and awesome as we all hoped it would be. The lead single from Merill Garbus's indie/world music based band pursues many silly (in a good way) themes lyrically and sonically, but wins because it just sounds like a good old time from start to finish. She speaks of bear killing, blood soaked dollars, and massive chicken dinners, while decking in all out in delicious tribal rhythms.

And if you needed any more good news, Garbus also revealed a series of tour dates the same day that have her making a trip to Nashville's Bridgestone Arena to open for all the rage indie rockers Arcade Fire on May 1. This promises to be one of the best twinbills Nashville will see all year, so if you needed any more motivation to make the trip, do it!
