New song from Thao & The Get Down Stay Down

I started drafting a post on Thao & The Get Down Stay Down about a year ago. I guess I was waiting for something newsworthy to post along with the lovely music.

Well, as luck would have it, Thao is releasing a new album this February. It's called We the Common and it's out February 5. For now we have a preview track. It's called "Holy Roller" and it is, like all of Thao's music, Lovely, Quirky, Heartfelt, Fun, Funky, Danceable, Emotional, and Pretty.

Enjoy the new song along with some from their previous release, 2009's Know Better Learn Faster.

"Holy Roller"

"When We Swam"

"Body" The video itself starts after about 3 minutes...

"Cool Yourself"

And "Bag of Hammers" from We Brave Bee Stings and All, which was released simply under the artist name of Thao.
