From Public Radio International’s Bullseye with Jesse Thorn:
Thao Nguyen fronts the folk-pop band Thao and the Get Down Stay Down. The band’s new album, We the Common, has an intense and spirited sound. The songs feature rhythmic guitar, taut drums, and Nguyen’s soft, clear and passionate vocals.
Thao remembers when music became important to her and the song that changed her life — Smokey Robinson’s “You’ve Really Got a Hold On Me.”
