Thao & Mirah “Thao & Mirah” (2011)

August 15, 2011

Folk rocker Thao Nguyen of the Get Down Stay Down and indie singer Mirah join forces and record an almost perfect pop album. The whole thing was produced by Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs (who guests on Eleven) and I can assure you that she finished her job without any unnecessary crack or rattle. The very first song Eleven happens to be the finest as it bursts with excitement and energy. Little Cup ends with a grand finale of clutter. The voices of Thao and Mirah complement one another and you might get an impression that they are bound to never make a single track separately.

hydrameter: 4/5

Key Tracks: Eleven, Hallelujah, Little Cup, Spaced Out Orbit
