First Spin: tUnE-yArDs Joins Elephant & Castle’s ‘En Memoria’


“Elephant & Castle is David Vincent Reep, a Bay Area-based musician who specializes in free-floating, impressionistic electronica. His forthcoming full-length, Transitions (due March 13 via Plug Research), is a deliciously disorienting next step for Reep, and below, you can check out “En Memoria,” a bit of jazz-glazed haze that features lead vocals from tUnE-yArDs mastermind Merril Garbus, who just this week topped theVillage Voice’s annual Pazz and Jop critics poll.”
