Thao Nguyen and the men of the Get Down Stay Down (Adam Thompson and Willis Thompson) have some mountains to climb. Off of the success of their 2008 record, We Brave Bee Stings and All, which was the top-selling record of the year for Kill Rock Stars, their newest studio album, Know Better Learn Faster has some shoes to fill. They have once again tapped producer Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, Spoon) for what is sure to be an infectious genre-bending record that lives up to the energy of their live shows.
