local tunes

Monday, April 18, 2011

Thao, a DC area local, (well, I think she now calls the west coast home – but DC can still claim her, right?) partnered with Mirah for their new, self-titled, album.  The two of them sound amazing together –and as cliché as this sounds, they highlight the best of each other on this album – it’s true!   
If the two of them together were not reason enough to give their album a listen, then add into the mix the albums's producer -  tUnE-yArDs.  I recently discovered tUnE-yArDs (thanks to D!) and love her sounds! For quick cliff note-esque introduction tUnE-yArDs – it is essentially a one woman (Merril Garbus) show - she relies on a loop pedal to turn her voice into many – and adds in different instrument loops (even a ukulele)!
I’ll leave you with the first single (Eleven) from Thao + Mirah’s album, a good way to start off a Monday if you ask me!
