F*ckin-A, Indeed!

Check out a great new band, The Thermals! They've been compared to a noisier, punkier Guided By Voices. They come from Portland, OR and have 2 albums out on SubPop. Their first album, More Parts Per Million, garnered a lot of critical praise last year. The latest one is titled Fuckin A. So, obviously they aren't in any hurry to be played on MTV or a ClearChannel radio station.

My 2 recommendations are, to be honest, the only songs I've heard by them:

- No Culture Icons
- How We Know

Both are available for free download at SubPop. I just love the refrain on No Culture Icons - "Hardly art, hardly starving."
