Thao & Mirah LP Cover
thaomirah

Thao Nguyen and collaborator/tourmate Mirah, are set to release their collective effort Thao & Mirah on April 26th via Kill Rock Stars.

Thao and Mirah each wrote a new batch of beautiful songs which were jointly performed and produced by the three with some help from fine Bay Area friends. The album is a collection of songs from two distinctly different, highly respected songwriters, threaded and woven together with the creative energy and freedom of collaboration. Such freedom allowed for varied and rewarding levels of innovation, and a determination to keep the music-making as in-house as possible: both Thao and Mirah assume many of the instrumentation duties: from drums and bottles to slide guitar and knee caps. All songs maintain the writers' shared gifts: profound emotional poignancy with lyrics and melodies to match and stay with you. [Kill Rock Stars]

They'll kick off a spring tour with Led to Sea on May 1st in Los Angeles. The two groups will make a stop in Chicago on June 3rd to play Empty Bottle. Tickets are still available.

You can download the album tracks "How Dare You", and "Eleven" featuring, and produced by tUnE-yArDs at the top of this post.
