New Home And New Album For Thao And The Get Down Stay Down

April 24, 2013 - Thao Nguyen has been very busy since her last album 2009’s Know Better Learn Faster. The band moved to San Francisco.

Thao also explored recording with other artists, making an album with Mirah. But as we hear in the interview today it was developing a sense of community in her new Bay Area home that most inspired the new album We The Common. On one of the first tracks released from the disc, “Kindness Be Conceived,” she shared songwriting credit and vocals with fellow San Francisco based musician Joanna Newsom. The Cafe’s Michaela Majoun delves into it all with Thao, and Thao gives some great live performances.
