I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life
I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life is the fourth album from the New England duo, Tune-Yards. Written by songwriter Merrill Garbus and bandmate Nate Brenner, like previous releases, the album oozes DIY collage. This album, however, seeks to place itself within the political sphere: fusing cut-up vocals and samples with house and disco with a lyrical content that sits the album at the centre of current social justice conversations.
Over the bouncing beats and disco basslines of ‘Colonizer,’ Garbus sings: “I use my white woman’s voice to tell stories of travels with African men…I turn on my white woman’s voice to contextualise acts of my white woman friends.”
This avant-pop album, contains a wide range of imaginative and quirky soundscapes and cross-genre songs, most notably, the chaos-disco-fusion of the opening track ‘Heart Attack’ and dissonant-choral-dub track, ‘Home’.
I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life is undoubtedly a provocative album, through which Tune-Yards aim to challenge not only musical tastes but accepted social normalities. The album is available as a limited edition clear 12" vinyl in an alternative sleeve and poster.
