Thao a Mirah are reportedly working on a record and a summer tour—certainly enthralling news, as both ladies reliably pen tracks from heartfelt to bouncy and both kill it live. Add in tUnE-yArDs' Merril Garbus and the project becomes exponentially more intriguing, taking on an air of nouveau indie rock monarchy.
Now, I'm still bumping tUnE-yArDs' new single, "Bizzness,"—if you haven't heard it, drop whatever you're doing and crank the motherfucker. tUnE-yArDs' w h o k i l l, coming out on April 19th, is probably the record I'm most eagerly anticipating so far this year.
And if "Eleven," the new Mirah-Thao joint produced by and featuring tUnE-yArDs is any indicator, I'll go ahead and add their record to the list as well. It's to be released April 26th on Kill Rock Stars.
