I loved "Midnight City"
as much as the next guy, but my choice for best tune of 2011 has been "Bizness"
from enigmatic wailer Merril Garbus, better known by her stage-name tUnE-yArDs
. Well, tUnE-yArDs is back with a new video for another w h o k i l l
standout "My Country," and those crazy facepainted kids from the "Bizness" video are back one more time.
"My Country" is the angry political anthem of the album with Garbus railing against the social inequality and injustices that are plaguing our nation. It was relevant when she released w h o k i l l
last April, and with the forthcoming presidential election as well as the steady return (and beating away by police) of the Occupiers across the country, now is the perfect moment to release a video for the song.
