That makes me... sweat.

About This Episode

Thao Nguyen has slowly but surely built a following over the last decade, releasing a string of increasingly powerful albums. (And performing with the likes of Joanna Newsom and Andrew Bird, which doesn't hurt.) With her band The Get Down Stay Down, Nguyen just put out We The Common. We were a little surprised that they grabbed INXS' "Need You Tonight," from the band's 1987 classic Kick—it seems pretty far off from the band's aesthetic in general. (And we're happy/sad they didn't add "Mediate," the original song's silly little coda.) Enjoy.
