MUSICOMH

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

90
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.

90
NO RIPCORD

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

90
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.

88
PITCHFORK

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

80
POPMATTERS

With a crisper, clearer production that helps it to stand out, w h o k i l l is, almost literally speaking, tUnE-yArDs’ breakthrough.

80
CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

w h o k i l l is an album indulgent in eccentricity, compelling in its variety, and downright impossible to not enjoy.
