Throwing it back to a Slab Session so nice we premiered it twice.

We are rapidly approaching the bafflingly cool upcoming 2017 installment of Pickathon in Oregon (Dinosaur Jr., Charles Bradley, and Drive-By Truckers sharing stages with Big Thief, Alex Cameron, and Aldous Harding??), so, naturally, now is an absolutely swell opportunity to take a second pass at one of the first Slab Sessions culled from last year’s fest—featuring Thao & the Get Down Stay Down.

The first time around, we were treated to a gritty version of “Departure,” from 2016’s A Man Alive, and now we’re getting a take of “Kindness Be Conceived,” from 2013’s We the Common. It’s a slide-stomp of a take, with dueling guitars pairing up with dueling vocals—a dynamic, aggressive approach at an otherwise gentle song.
