RIYL: Classic indie rock and power pop

As the days¬†grow colder and the skies turn grayer,¬†it’s a perfect time for some Thermals. ¬†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 group¬†as they released¬†Desperate Ground, their first record on Saddle Creek, and got the reissue treatment for their first 3 albums¬†from Sub Pop on delicious colored wax. ¬†If those were insta-buys for you, 2016’s We Disappear will certainly¬†not disappoint. ¬†First single Hey You is a no-frills sweaty¬†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. ¬†Long may it live.
