There's an energy and atmosphere to w h o k i l l which seems to just pour off the record.

Drowned in Sound

With whokill, Merrill Garbus has somehow managed to encompass more ideas into just over 40 minutes than most artists manage in a lifetime.

No Ripcord

It’s a massive improvement from her last album, yet it never sacrifices any of her style.

Tiny Mix Tapes

This album demands your open-minded attention on its own terms, and it ends up teaching you how to listen to it in a new way.


The music benefits from the increased professionalism, but Garbus has not abandoned her lo-fi aesthetic.

Merrill Garbus is one of the coolest yet weirdest female singers I have ever seen. This album is one of my top albums by a female along with Joanna Newson. Incredible voice, incredible display of musical and instrumental technique.

Even if you dislike this album, you gotta give it up to Merrill for making of the most unique and colorful pop albums in quite a while. The songs are super catchy and I love how she makes grooves and instrumentals out of her own vocal sampling. This is my absolute go to "Happy Mood" album.

"Powa" and "Gangsta" are two of the best songs of the new decade. "My Country", "Bizness", and "Doorstep" are also wonderful. Really took me by surprise. A great album with a great, organic, and artistic mood.
