It’s only been until this summer that I finally got acquainted with Thao and the Get Down Stay Down‘s incredible alt rock, when, completely by chance, I stumbled across their myspace. Boy, was I missing out! There’s something really special about the band, it’s almost like they have this sort of aura around them, something that I can’t quite put my finger on – maybe it’s their catchy pop hooks or, just as well, the band’s perfect use of anthem choruses, but, whatever the case may be, they’re doing something right. Thao’s latest album, “Know Better Learn Faster“, got released last week, following more or less the same winning formula that got their previous full length effort, “We Brave Bee Stings and All“, tons of recognition. For a sample of the band’s work, check out their latest album’s title track bellow or, even better, Thao’s myspace.
