Thao with the Get Down Stay Down: Know Better Learn Faster
Buy! - (Kill Rock Stars)
Thao Nguyen & co. follow up 2008’s excellent We Brave Beestings and All with another first-rate album of smartly crafted indie-pop. Know Better Learn Faster is a breakup album so it’s a little darker, with a few more downbeat songs than usual. That said, there are plenty of exuberant moments to be found here, along with some intriguing stylistic detours incorporating everything from backwoods gospel to various shades of Afro-pop. 9/15/2009 - Don Yates
