Thao and The Get Down Stay Down / A Man Alive

Fourth album from San Francisco-based band fronted by Thao Nguyen with production (and vocal appearances) from Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs. Introspective, emotional, and powerful.

FCC Clean

1) ** (3:30) Astonished Man - blues guitar and kick drum break beat takes and electronic turn, harmonious hook
2) * (3:11) Slash/Burn - rumbling bass, gritty drum, guitar tones woven through looped background vocals. RIYL Sleigh Bells.
3) (3:25) The Evening - funky stomping bass and drums, guitar tones, distortion vocal cries
4) * (3:26) Departure - hand-clapped beat, acoustic pieces, grimy long bass notes
5) ** (3:48) Nobody Dies - infectious euphoric pop-centric stomp-along punctuated by vocals
6) (4:05) Guts - easy-going swinging organ strut, vocal lullaby, pedal-driven slide guitar
7) * (3:08) Fool Forever - organ, hi-hat, booming hook, vocal reminiscent of 80s Romeo Void
8) (3:06) Millionaire - organ, bass drum, toms, guitar underlying the track
9) (3:22) Meticulous Bird - bass filled rap chant, kick drum break beat
10) * (2:59) Give Me Peace - layered vocals, guitar and a flash of toy piano
11) (3:52) Hand to God - acoustic guitar at first before bass and snare enter, fine lyrical composition
12) (3:48) Endless Love - dub rock, layered vocals
