    We The Common

    We The Common, the third full-length album from critically acclaimed artist Thao & The Get Down Stay Down. Recorded at San Francisco's Tiny Telephone Studios and Dallas' Elmwood Studio, We The Common was produced by John Congleton [St. Vincent, Bill Callahan, Explosions In The Sky] and features a duet with Joanna Newsom on the track "Kindness Be Conceived." Thao Nguyen observes, We The Common is an album about wanting to be a human who tries and is grateful for the opportunity. It is about wanting to be better and closer to people. "I have had over a year respite from touring and recording-in this year I started really trying to be a part of the community I live in and the family I was born into."

    We Brave Bee Stings And All

    Thao's sly and mischievous sense of humour is all over this record, lightening the gravity of her words in the tradition of the very best songwriters, raising the mundane and ordinary to the extraordinary. Her music comes to life during her live performances, where Thao's clever, self-depricating and charming personality shines, surpassed only by her guitar picking skills.

    Know Better Learn Faster

    Thao and the Get Down Stay Down are an awesome example of a great band making their success the old-fashioned way: by earning it. With only a locally-released full-length in her hometown of Richmond, VA under her belt, Thao put together an impressive backing band and began touring the US and Europe non-stop in 2007. When her debut full-length, We Brave Bee Stings And All was released on KRS in January 2008 she continued touring, building her fanbase with an exciting, electric live show. Massive acclaim in the press and word of mouth propelled sales until she became the best-selling KRS artist of 2008 and the second-fastest selling artist in KRS history.

    Thao And Mirah

    In 2010, Thao Nguyen, leader of Thao With the Get Down Stay Down, and singer/songwriter Mirah (K Records), linked up for a tour. And now, the two have joined forces to release the self-titled album, Thao & Mirah. The duo recorded the album in a two-week period, with Tune-Yards mastermind Merrill Garbus co-producing, guesting, and writing one song. Various Bay Area musicians also contribute.

    The Ornament

    Nothing gold can stay. Even as he tried to capture it in verse, Robert Frost appreciated the ephemeral nature of beauty. And so does Grant Olsen. Yet a nod to the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet is only one of the reasons the Seattle-based songwriter, best known as half of the duo Arthur & Yu, christened his new project Gold Leaves. An autumnal character imbues these nine originals. Just as foliage buds, changes color, and eventually falls from the branches every season, so too do themes of birth, death and regeneration permeate The Ornament.


    Like most creative types, Olsen's muse is always in transition. The album went through myriad permutations between inception and completion. Although he began work on it nearly four years ago, he scrapped the bulk of those early efforts after a bag containing his laptop and notebooks was stolen. The theft seemed a sign. Perhaps he was writing a second Arthur & Yu album? No. In the space of composing and refining The Ornament, Olsen had married, traveled through Central and South America, seen the birth of new family members, and watched a dear one pass. This transitional period was coupled with observations of his nation in flux, all of which informs the universe of this record. While he hoped to open these subjects up in a manner that would permit a broad range of listeners to relate to the sentiments, he recognized that their inciting intimacy precluded turning these songs into Arthur & Yu tunes.


    Although he wrote all the songs, calling Gold Leaves a solo project is a misnomer. Olsen had a great deal of help making The Ornament. Jason Quever of Papercuts was by his side through most of the recording process, serving as co-producer, engineer, and multiinstrumentalist. Quever helped guide editorial choices, keeping scratch vocals when Olsen wanted to go back into the vocal booth and try again, and laid down the four-in-the-morning cello part that haunts Hanging Window. With a resume that encompasses tutelage under Motown veterans and credits with Beach House and Brightblack Morning Light, Ben McConnell was an ideal percussionist to anchor Olsen's amorphous musical ideas. Thao Ngyuen (Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, Thao & Mirah), Amy Blaschke, and members of the Moondoggies all contributed backing vocals.

    A Friend In The World

    Portland based Lovers fuse intimacy and empowerment into a modern atmosphere of honesty, new feminist humor, and rhythmic complexity. The result is at once confident, tender and romantic. The follow-up to their best-selling 2010 release Darklight, A Friend in the World is a rich engagement of acoustic and electronic extroversion and introspection--an uplifting ride into uncharted territories of the heart and mind.


    Recorded at Portland, Oregon's beloved Type Foundry with Dylan Magierek (Thao Nguyen & Portland Cello Project, Mark Kozelek, Starfucker) and Adam Selzer (She & Him, M.Ward), and mixed by Andy Lemaster (Michael Stipe, Bright Eyes).
