Last week one of my friends posted a crowdsourcing question on Facebook that boiled down to what should she be listening to right now? Taking that golden opportunity I mentioned two groups that I have become fond of over the last few months. Others chimed in and it didn't take long for a short list to form. Leave it to social media to provide you with a digital playlist for how to effectively spend an iTunes gift card. Brilliant. This morning, after the long holiday weekend, my reader was bursting with news of new music. Forthcoming festivals and tours. Heaps of albums waiting to be released and general sounds that made my heart happy. Which is where Thao & The Get Down Stay Down comes in. Due to release their new album We The Common on February 5th this group is just the right dose of cubicle clapping cheer for a short week.
Ps. The band will be in Kansas City, Salt Lake City, and Washington DC in the next couple months.
So, you know, you might wanna go see them or something.
