Thao & The Get Down Stay Down: "We the Common (for Valerie Bolden)," "Move," and "The Feeling Kind"

By Michael J.W. Stickings

I'd never heard of Thao Nguyen, nor of Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, until I saw her, and them, on Austin City Limits this weekend.

I'm now a fan.

And I highly recommend you check her, and them, out, including their most recent album, 2013's We the Common.

Here are "We the Common (for Valerie Bolden)," inspired by one of the women Thao met through her volunteer work for the California Coalition for Women Prisoners, from ACL, "Move," a web exclusive from the ACL performance, and the official video for "The Feeling Kind," the latter two also from We the Common.
