tUnE-yArDs RELEASES NEW SINGLE ‘WATER FOUNTAIN’ & REVEALS ALBUM DETAILS

Due out May 2nd, Nikki Nack - the third album from tUnE-yArDs - was first announced when Merrill Garbus celebrated her birthday by posting a ‘MegaMix’ of album tracks online. Delighting fans, she’s teased everyone long enough and is now ready to reveal more album details.

Experiences in her time off between albums proved to be influential in its songwriting process; a life-affirming trip to Haiti, her upbringing, and finally catching up with 80s kid’s TV programme Pee Wee’s Playhouse some 25 years since its first broadcast were all topics at the forefront of Merrill’s mind that helped to shape and colour the record.

Eager to never stand still, Merrill enlisted producers Malay (Frank Ocean, Alicia Keys, Big Boi) and John Hill (Rihanna, Shakira, M.I.A).

The first track to be heard from the album, ‘Water Fountain’, received its premiere on Lauren Laverne’s BBC 6Music radio show and can now be heard streaming from Merrill’s website, www.tuneyards.com.

FLYING NUN RECORDS RE-ISSUE TWO LIMITED EDITION 12” EPS FOR RECORD STORE DAY

It’s been over three decades since Christchurch record shop employee and music fan, Roger Shepherd was inspired to start a record label as an outlet for South Island bands. And it was the city of Dunedin that quickly became most strongly associated with Flying Nun, and in 1982, four bands from that southern outpost - The ChillsSneaky Feelings, the Stones and the Verlaines – each recorded a side for a double 12″ EP pack, which actually untitled, was referred to as the Dunedin Double.

The Dunedin EP theme also continues with Flying Nun’s other Record Store Day release, the Bored Games - ‘Who Killed Colonel Mustard.’

Released the same year as the Dunedin Double (1982) it introduced the music of a 17-year-old Shayne Carter, who would later go on to form The DoubleHappy’s and Straightjacket Fits. In the tradition of many great bands they formed while attending high school, debuting at the school’s talent contest in 1979 they went on to play a show supporting Toy Love.

As part of the Record Store Day release, the EP has been remastered and includes an insert of previously unseen photos. Limited to 1000 copies.
