The Thermals - "Now We Can See" (MP3)

by PopMatters Staff

11 February 2009

 

The Thermals’ last proper full album release, The Body, the Blood, the Machine, was pretty highly though of around these parts. Michael Keefe gave it an 8 and it landed on our best albums of the year list, with Joe Tacopino calling it “Hutch Harris’s Orwellian allegory, sort of like 1984 set against a backdrop of ultra catchy power-pop hooks and a rollicking rhythm section punctuated by the buoyant bass lines of Kathy Foster.”

They’ve since left Sub Pop Records and have a new release, Now We Can See, dropping April 7th on Kill Rock Stars. Ultra poppy and yet biting, “Now We Can See” is the first single.

"Fire Emblem Heroes desperately and shamelessly wants to monetize our love for these characters, yet it has no idea why we came to love them in the first place.
