Video: Tune-Yards – “Gangsta”

Of all the wonderful songs on Tune-Yards’ sophomore album w h o k i l l, “Gangsta” might be the most chaotic. From Merrill Garbus’ siren-like vocal beginning to all the ragged saxophone playing and crazy-abrupt tempo shifts, the song is a study in how to aurally assault a listener in a totally awesome way. Because the song is so wacky, it’s an interesting development that the video for it — which debuted for the world just yesterday — is all in black and white. For a person as colorful and occasionally wacky as Garbus, it came as a bit of a surprise. But since we love pretty much everything Tune-Yards does here at TWJ, naturally, we think the video’s pretty cool. Watch below, and check out the remix of “Gangsta” by Ad-Rock as well.
