Thao Gets Down and Stays Down with Mirah: New Album in the Works

Posted By on Thu, Jul 29, 2010 at 4:19 PM


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.

Also, check out this video of them together on tour from last month:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
