Thao Nguyen and the Get Down Stay Down

I stumbled on this young lass Thao Nguyen's music thanks to Irish Times journalist Jim Carroll's music blog. She's more Virginia than Vina and now based in Washington DC-or-San Fran according to her myspace page. But thought I'd post it here 'cos she's Vietnamese and the music is dead cool. Maybe someday she'll come and play at the R&R tavern...

Here's her official website page.
Some of you might notice her singing voice has a touch of Cat Power, at least that opening song on her myspace page Beat Health Life and Fire -- embedded below -- does. It's a cracker. Enjoy.
