My Obsession: The Thermals

Lots of people rant about lots of bands and about how great they are, then I go and check ’em out and wonder if I’m the only person who’s not getting it. Then we have the Thermals, a band from Portland who absolutely make me fall on love with music all over again.

Honestly they are a bit of a one trick pony, but the trick they do is so irresistible I love it. A 3 piece band with the obligatory female bassist, the Thermals create a sound that is sonically (sic) overwhelming and makes me want to smash my living room up. They have released 3 albums to date and even though I haven’t had a chance to catch them live yet, I know I will the next time they hit LA.
