Tune-Yards cover Yoko at Airwaves

Another week, another magic live performance from Tune-Yards (as you know, I refuse to do the cAps ShIfT thing), this time covering a Yoko Ono song, We're all water, at the Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reykjavik. As with all great cover versions, Merrill Garbus (and Nate Brenner, let's not forget) manages to make it sound like one of her own songs. Yoko joins them onstage at the end for some freeform vocal workouts, and later asks the crowd "she's great, right?" The answer, Yoko, is yes. (Makes me feel a bit sorry for Nate cos he's extremely cool too.)
