Thermals - Desperate GroundOh Hutch, Kathy, and Westin, how do we love thee! In 2013, you are not only gracing us with so much:

– A brand new album of brand new Thermals songs on the beloved Saddle Creek label {of Bright Eyes / Conor Oberst fame} on April 16 {with a limited edition vinyl version on colored vinyl available for pre-order}

– Sub Pop is reissuing all of three Thermals' Sub Pop-released albums on limited edition, colored vinyl on March 5, 2013

All that HOT HOT Thermals vinyl action makes me SWOOOOOOON! 

The new Thermals album is titled Desperate Ground and has been described as having "all the raw power and unhinged adolescent energy that made their early LP’s so insanely enjoyable" and is "a dark and yet joyous affair." I'm sold!

They don't have any Seattle dates, but I know they can't stay away from us for long.  In the meantime we can listen to the first single from the album on repeat (and download it for free via the box below!).  I get light-headed everytime Hutch sings, "Keep me alliiiive" because it's so More Parts Per Million!!!! I also like the "when you command, I will" part.

{2013 has barely started and I've already put tougher my nearly probably very likely official Top 10 Favorite Releases for 2013, even though I've actually only heard a couple albums on the list… that's how good I know these albums are going to be. Over the course of 10 days I'll countdown these probably very likely AMAZING releases that make up my very likely possibly concrete list of my favorite albums of 2013!
