female singer/songwriters month : thao

there seems to be a good amount of positive buzz surrounding thao nguyen these days, and it's great to see another asian representin. her third release finds her without the surname, but with the get down stay down behind her and a heaping spoonful of reasons why she deserves all the attention. we brave bee stings and all is simply irresistible, from the faux precociousness of the title to the preponderance of mouthwatering hooks provided by the get down stay down. there is an incredibly charming playfulness to thao's voice that deceives the gravity of her lyrics, making for an altogether fascinating combination of joy and sorrow, innocence and carnal knowledge. remember this one at the end of the year, because it will surely make an appearance on a lot of best-of lists.

thao : "beat (health, life, and fire)"
from the lp we brave bee stings and all (kill rockstars, 2008)
