Thao with the Get Down Stay Down

Like a breath of fresh air, Thao Nguyen is a totally independent voice from San Francisco. With a dash of Modest Mouse, a splash of Feist and an eye for the quirkier side of life. Managed by the former president of the Kill Rock Stars label, Slim Moon, Thao sent her track — Like the Linen — to Laura Veirs, who connected her to her drummer, Tucker Martine, famed producer for The Decemberists and Sufjan Stevens. In August of 2006, her group — Thao with the Get Down Stay Down — began recording with Martine in Seattle and released the album We Brave Bee Stings And All in January of 2008 — an album that has since caught the attention of the iTunes generation. Yup, just wait for it to hit the next Apple Mac ad.
