Northwest ne(rd)anderthal Tom Ojendyk & his brother Bill have a cool grunge blog. They feature lot’s of cool mp3’s and coverage of great / interesting Northwest bands like Wipers, Pure Joy, Green River, Melvins, Tad, Earth, Dickless, Blood Circus, Girl Trouble etc..
In case you didn’t notice, we launched! The new website! It’s been a very busy few weeks for me and I’m ready to relax by the fire with a few fancy drinks.
Extra special thanks to: Stuart, James, Andrew, Chris, Dusty, Jeff, Jonathan, Megan, the rest of the Sub Pop staff and countless interns. w00t!
You know The Thermals, right? They released an amazing new record, called The Body, The Blood, The Machine on Aug. 22, 2006. And, a lot of people seem to like it pretty well – Pitchfork’s Top 50 of 2006, _SPIN_’s top 40 of 2006, The Onion’s Best Music of 2006, and both NPR’s Best CDs of 2006 and their Overlooked 11 of 2006.
Yeah, THE THERMALS!
Well, very soon (FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16th, to be exact) you will be able to watch these same Thermals perform their mega-smash hit A Pillar of Salt on none other than NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly program! So, why don’t you? Watch them? On Friday, the 16th? Because, really, if you don’t love The Thermals, how will you ever learn to love yourself?
A bunch of new Jennifer Gentle stuff has popped up on Youtube of late with the highlights being a Chinese commercial that uses I Do Dream You as it’s soundtrack! More importantly there’s footage of the new lineup playing a new song up there as well.
Their new record just came in the mail this week & is a whole new strain of amazing, offbeat & awesome! It should be coming out on June 19th & will supported by a full US tour. Yaw!
