Thao And Mirah – Love Is A Battlefield (Pat Benatar Cover)

Thao & Mirah just released their excellent self-titled debut as a team. The album was co-produced by tUnE-yArDs’ Merrill Garbus and features several Bay Area musicians assisting multi-instrumentalists Thao Nguyen and Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn at John Vanderslice’s Tiny Telephone studios. The pair also visited New, Improved Recording in Oakland to record this live session. It includes three tracks from their album, as well as this nicely reconfigured version of Pat Benatar’s “Love Is A Battlefield.” Watch video of the live in the studio cover below, and grab an MP3 below. Grab the rest of the tracks at the New, Improved, LIVE sessions website.

Grieves, an up-and-coming Seattle MC, has been impressing sold-out crowds as an opener for Minneapolis indie hip-hop mainstays Atmosphere on their current tour, and, from the sound of this killer track, the introspective apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Grieves will release his new album, Together/Apart, on June 21– it’s his first first on Atmosphere frontman Slug’s Rhymesayers label. Hear the heartfelt song “Bloody Poetry” here.
