thao and the get down stay down


so i finally got to see thao and the get down stay down yesterday at ribfest, and they were so fun live.  high recommended.  awesome musicianship, great stage presence and the ability to pull of their songs as well as they were recorded.

i don't usually get this indie pop, but there is something about thao that i just can't resist.  the alt folk twee pop genres aside, their music is upbeat, the lyrics interesting and their songs get stuck in my head all the time.   for instance below is a video for bag of hammers, which has been etched on my brain since i first heard a year ago....



....anyway everyone should check them out live.....and should pick up thao's new LP in october when it comes out........
