“Hallelujah” (Live On KCRW) (Video)

     

    Merrill Garbus of Tune Yards has had a busy year. Her w h o k i l l album is one of the big highlights of 2011, but she also took time out to produce the eponymously titled record by Thao & Mirah, which received positive word on its release back in April. Here you can witness a live reworking of “Hallelujah” from that album, which was shot exclusively for a Morning Becomes Eclectic performance on KCRW. It takes a while for this version to hit its stride, with much of the track firmly set in downbeat introspection, but there’s a neat glimpse of how this duo can add different shades to their sound about two-thirds of the way through. Check it out above. [via AHIAS]
