Thao with the Get Down Stay Down : Know Better Learn Faster

thao_knowbetterlearnfaster_small.jpgKnow Better Learn Faster is the second album from Thao Nguyen and her backing band, Get Down Stay Down.  The album’s low fi sounding production can be described as alternative country pop and the groaning background vocals, jangle of guitars, and composed lead vocals in the track, “Know Better Learn Faster,” are a testament to the production quality and effort these artists have put forth. 

“Burn You Up” showcases Thao’s writing talent, when she forges new memories with the old: “don’t you want to go home with me, But I remember the most, don’t you want a new memory, I will wait the winter long, I think I could burn you up.”  After listening to this hypnotic album, it will be difficult to forget.

Know Better Learn Faster is out now on Kill Rock Stars.
