[MP3] Thao & Mirah- “Eleven [Feat. tUnE-yaRds]”

When I first heard of a possible collaboration between Thao Nguyen (of Thao with the Get Down Stay Down) and singer/songwriter Mirah, I have to admit, I got a little excited.  Slow down. Not like that. What I meant is that, I’m a big fan of both their artistic outputs, so the thought of an album worth of material from them as a duo is something I’m looking forward to—even more so, after I downloaded “Eleven” a few days back.

The track, off the duo’s self-titled debut out 4/26 via Kill Rock Stars, features Merrill Garbus (a.k.a. tUne-yaRds) who co-produced, guested, and wrote one song.  As far as its sound, it’s more Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, than the lo-fi indie-pop of Mirah. More specifically, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down mixed with tUnE-yaRds.  Regardless, I’m digging it.
