Thao Nguyen and her alternative indie-folk entourage The Get Down Stay Down have been making waves around the San Francisco scene (as well as all around the free world) for quite some time now, and proof of that is how anticipated the follow-up to their 2013 LP We the Common has been since it was first announced.

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down's new album A Man Alive is due out next week via Kill Rock Stars, but you can stream all its agitating beauty right now via NPR. You're welcome.
