Thao Gets Down and Stays Down with Mirah: New Album in the Works
How apropos: Indie singer-songwriter-guitarist who only goes by her first name meets other indie singer-songwriter-guitarist who only goes by her first name. They go on tour -- and then decide to record an album together.
Yes: What began as a single set at San Francisco's Noise Pop festival this past spring has blossomed into a full-blown musical relationship. Kill Rock Stars announced this week that Thao Nguyen and Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn's month-long summer tour together was no fling -- they next plan to record together. Said the label: "The two fast friends will cook up an entirely new batch of songs at San Francisco's famed Tiny Telephone Studios with as many Bay Area friends as can be gathered." The album is due out next spring.
So Thao is going to, um, Get Down and Stay Down with Mirah? For an idea of what the partnership will sound like, check out a video of Thao and Mirah working out some kinks on the song "How Dare You" at Thao's house in San Francisco after the jump.
