Synopsis

Album Description
2009 album from the Indie favorites. Thermal mainstays Hutch Harris and Kathy Foster recorded Now We Can See as a duo, as they did on 2006's The Body, The Blood, The Machine. Foster performed all drums and bass (and sang for the first time on a Thermals record), while Harris sang lead and played guitar. They returned to Oregon City's Supernatural Sound, with John Congleton (Explosions In The Sky, Polyphonic Spree) producing. The result is the widest, loudest piece of Alternative/Indie/Punk Rock The Thermals have yet unleashed. Lyrically, The Thermals have managed to move past religion and politics, yet remain joyously obsessed with love and death. Though the subject matter may be dark at times, the lyrics, as well as the melodies, remain as catchy and uplifting as ever.

CD Reviews

Likeable Post-Punk
Marcus Tullius Wardo | 04/13/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Thermals pound out low-fi post-punk. (As the band says on its website, they describe their music as post-punk "because adding 'post-' to any genre automatically makes your music sound smarter.") Their sound is stripped down and straightforward, akin to Green Day or The Strokes. While the sound is simple, the lyrics are smart and sophisticated and the album is a song cycle about life and death, or maybe evolution, or maybe decline and fall, or maybe the circular nature of existence. Or whatever, I don't think the band meant to create something epic but also didn't want stereotypical songs about sex, drugs and rock and roll. This album is light-hearted and fun and worth a listen."
