Tune-Yards was formed by Merrill Garbus in 2006, and that band name has ever since been synonymous with forward movement—whether because of the group's explosive performance style, the always-surprising way in which their songs unfold, or the lines Merrill draws between music and social activism. First gaining notice with the debut BiRd-BrAiNs, which The New York Times called “a confident do-it-yourselfer's opening salvo: a staticky, low-fi, abrasive attention-getter,” Garbus forged a reputation as a formidable live presence through relentless touring.

Garbus became a producer in her own right working with bassist Nate Brenner and engineer Eli Crews on 2011's w h o k i l l, a startling and sonically adventurous statement that led to a whirlwind period where the band accrued accolades from critics (including the #1 spot on the Village Voice's 2011 Pazz and Jop poll.) In 2014, Tune-Yards released Nikki Nack, and through touring and licensing music from that album, they raised money to begin The Water Fountain, a fund for water-related causes which has donated over $75,000 to various nonprofits since its inception.

Tune-Yards has collaborated with Yoko Ono, Laurie Anderson, David Byrne, Mavis Staples, and others. They are currently working on their fourth album, for release in 2018.


The newest signing to Stones Throw Records, 23-year-old violinist and vocalist Sudan Archives has been impressing critics and live audiences with her innovative sound. Sudan Archives writes, plays, and produces her own music. Drawing inspiration from North African fiddlers, she is self-taught on the violin, and her unique songs also fold in elements of R&B, West African rhythms, and experimental electronic music. Her debut EP was launched with a video shot in Ghana for the single Come Meh Way. Released digitally in July 2017 and on vinyl in September, Sudan Archives EP is an extraordinary debut statement from a singular artist.
