Saturday Sessions: Tune-Yards perform "Hypnotized”

California-based music duo Tune-Yards join this week’s “Saturday Sessions.” Artists Merrill Garbus and Nate Brenner recorded their first album with a hand-held recorder on a recycled cassette tape. It got them noticed — and signed — and a later album hit the Top Ten on Billboard’s Rock and Independent Albums charts. Performing from Oakland from their new album "Sketchy,” here are Tune-Yards with "Hypnotized."
