This is a band I have been holding back on, Thao Nguyen and The Get Down Stay Down. I was gonna post them probably in my year-in-review extravaganza but then last night on NBC's hit new comedy Kath & Kim (actually pretty funny) I heard one of their songs on in the background. So i thought I would pass the news along before I they start showing up everywhere so I can take some sort of credit (credit: my friend out in B.C., Jonathan, told me about them if this impresses you and you would like to learn more about him I can put you in touch with him). I am having a lot of trouble picking just one or two songs so I will post three. "Beat" is their best song, "Bag of Hammers" is a good one as well and "Geography" makes sense. Their latest release, We Brave Bee Stings and All, is...like amazing and stuff...of the 11 songs I think 5 of them are 4 stars or better (yes, you should be impressed by that...Unless you hate these songs then that stat should probably not impress you and you should really wonder why you are taking musical advice from me).
