Can a ukulele rock? When Tune-Yards' Merrill Garbus is playing one it can. With a bassist and horn section fleshing out her tunes, Garbus thrashes her uke, pounds on a drum, and sings as though she's trying to split the clouds. She shifts between soulful trills and warrior cries in the span of a few notes while dancing up a storm to Afro-pop rhythms.
