Does a whole equal the sum of its parts? For Thao Nguyen and Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn, two accomplished solo artists plus producer Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs, equals a complementary push-pull of an album.
They met in 2010 when Thao invited Mirah to play a Noise Pop show with her. Afterward, they toured together when Mirah moved to Thao's home of San Francisco, which is when Thao and Mirah decided to make an album together of the same name. Whether playing acoustically together or influenced by Garbus' predisposition for more experimental sounds, Thao and Mirah sound like they were meant to sing together.
Thao and Mirah stopped by the Current studios for a live performance. Songs performed: "Little Cup," "Folks," and "How Dare You."
