The Thermals - “Now We Can See” (MP3)

[11 February 2009]

By PopMatters Staff

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.
