CRITIC REVIEWS

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.

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.

Merrill Garbus delivers a pretty interesting record which takes influence from African music and reinvents it for w h o k i l l. whilst Merrill Garbus' vocals can be a bit annoying at times, the instrumentation and production makes this record something quite unique to hear.

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.
