RIYL: Classic indie rock and power pop
As the daysÂ grow colder and the skies turn grayer,Â it’s a perfect time for some Thermals. Â From Sub Pop to Kill Rock Stars to Saddle Creek, The Portland-based Thermals have enjoyed a long, successful career, cranking out tried-and-true indie rock since the early aughts.
2013 was a big year for the groupÂ as they releasedÂ Desperate Ground, their first record on Saddle Creek, and got the reissue treatment for their first 3 albumsÂ from Sub Pop on delicious colored wax. Â If those were insta-buys for you, 2016’s We Disappear will certainlyÂ not disappoint. Â First single Hey You is a no-frills sweatyÂ stomper complete with impossibly catchy hooks, a hand-clapping beat and plenty of feedback.
Pick up a limited slab of clear vinyl after the ‘buy’ link and then laugh in the faces of all those “rock and roll is dead” naysayers. Â Long may it live.
Clear vinyl LIMITED TO 400.
