“Kindness Be Conceived” has the feel of song you’d hear performed by a band of friends in country store somewhere off in the foothills of the mountains. For this one, Thao Nguyen and friends have invited Joanna Newsom to the stage to help with the singing, and they do the whole song as a beautifully clear duet. The song is off Thao and the Get Down Stay Down’s second LP, We the Common, which is due out February 5 on Ribbon Music. Check it out below.

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
