Marty Lennartz has been featuring Thao & The Get Down Stay Down on the Big Beat for a few years now, most recently spinning “Holy Roller” from the upcoming album. Now they’re in regular rotation on 93XRT. Click below to download the title track off that new disc, We The Common.
Thao hails from San Francisco and has been around since 2003. Raised in Falls Church, Virginia with her single mother, she often practiced her songs while working at her mother’s laundromat. She often cites Lilith Fair as an inspiration for her desire to become a singer/songwriter.
The band will be in town March 29 for a show at Lincoln Hall. If you’d like to purchase the full album (out February 5) head this way.
