Singer Thao Nguyen and her band The Get Down Stay Down are releasing their third full-length, We the Common, on February 5th. It’s a return to the group vibe for the indie-folk performer, who’s been collaborating with K Records luminary Mirah for the past few years. NPR Music premiered the record via its First Listen series last night. Of it, NPR’s Stephen Thompson said:
Thao Nguyen is one of the most commanding and distinctive young singers around. She infuses everything around her with electricity and mischievous boldness, from her live-wire concerts to the way her songs gallop and clamor, picking up intensity as they go along.
