Outside of their work as Thao And Mirah , Thao Nguyen and Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn each have their own successful music careers. Thao is the front woman and vocalist for her San Francisco-based folk-rock group The Get Down Stay Down ; since moving to Washington from Bala Cynwyd, PA, for college, Mirah has released a handful of albums on K Records (as well as numerous EPs). The success of the collaboration is clear in the effortlessness of their harmonies and lyrical banter on their 2011 self-titled debut, yet each has maintained a distinct independence since coming together [...]
Music Videos: Mirah – “The Forest” - Add a sexy/alluring female and some bizarre choreography to the title, and you have this video. Danger Beach – “Apache” - A turntable style animation displaying some Apaches at work, complete with epic surf-style rock. Robin Leduc – “Laissez Moi Passer” - Stop motion of skiing in the city streets. Probably the next sports craze in France. Fredrik – “Chrome Cavities” - Trippy close-ups of hand and face shadows are enough to creep [...]
Like overgrown kindergartners, we sit cross-legged on the Wonder Ballroom ’s wood floor. True to the metaphor, I sip straight orange juice from a plastic cup. I'm nursing the tail-end of a cold, and with distinctly non-kindergarten manners, am trying not to breathe on my fellow concertgoers. At the front of the room, on a stage that seems comically high from this vantage point, Marisa Anderson is noodling out lengthy, bluesy tunes on her guitar. She’s seated on a folding chair in the few square inches of performance area that aren't covered in equipment from the forthcoming [...]

[ download ] [tweetmeme] “Eleven” starts off with a percussive intro that never lets it up. The rim shots conjure up the sort of street festival that I might actually want to attend. These rhythms form the song’s engine, and they continue to surge forward throughout the track. Synths join in, ebbing and flowing almost carelessly. At its core, “Eleven” revolves around its innovative vocals. The song’s three vocalists, Thao Nguyen , Mirah , and tUnE-YarDs sing in unision: “Love is love / Don’t ever go away.” The group [...]

It's been pretty well documented that Kasey and I are pretty big fans of both Thao and Mirah. Both get a lot of play when we are at work in our kitchen and during our home-cooked meals. So, as you might imagine, we were very excited when they agreed to sit down with us for the first official Turntable Kitchen interview. We caught up with them outside the New Parish in Oakland where they were playing a set as part of their tour promoting their excellent new collaborative album aptly titled Thao & Mirah . We relaxed and talked [...]

"Raised by wolves of necessity / Come closer to me," sing Thao Nguyen and Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn in chorus on "Folks." The approach is distinctly Thao with her warbly howl and ferociously rhythmic acoustic guitar leading the charge, as Mirah's higher toned vocals provide the background polish in the form of a hushed harmony. While Thao & Mirah gives ample opportunity for the individual stylings of musicians Thao, Mirah, and producer Merrill Garbus (tUnE-yArDs) to shine—as much as lead-off track "Eleven" is distinctly tUnE-yArDs, "Folks" is Thao's, and "Little Cup" Mirah's—it's the dynamic moments [...]

I was really excited when I heard about the Thao/Mirah team up, but kinda forgot to follow the project until it was already released. The good news of this, though, is that the collaboration is even better than I expected. Their voices are quite complimentary, as are their songwriting styles. MP3: Thao & Mirah - [...]
Concert Review: The New Pornographers with Thao and Mirah, and Kathryn Calder, Mt. Baker Theatre, Bellingham, WA, 5/6/11
Three distinct indie acts converged in Bellingham.
Photos by: Moses Namkung A decidedly female audience flocked to Oakland's The New Parish for a decidedly female led night of reverie: a nice breather from a music world that is often overcrowded by men. The evening began with Seattle's solo siren, Led to Sea . L. Alex Guy loops her classical tinged violin melodies into rich, full, arrangements. Her performance included both instrumentals and songs about bike disasters and archaic maritime love stories. Alex later joined the headliners, adding violin and synths. Portland's Sallie Ford and the [...]
America's lovely Thao & Mirah: Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn and Thao Nyugen, both solo artists for a long time, met and decided to go on tour together last year. The outcome for two very distinct abilities as singer/songwriters is unpredictably black or white: either they'll clash or not. I remember Mirah's number "The Garden" on an episode of So You Think You Can Dance for a contemporary piece. Organic and soft, Mirah has released 5 albums in the last decade with an incredible vocal range, high falsettos and a connection to the natural world. What Thao lacks in [...]
