The one constant in the Thermals is that no matter how much they change—new drummers, new record labels, new Furbys—they ultimately remain the same. And that's a good thing. Anyone who delved deep into the underappreciated second half of last year's Personal Life can attest that this is not a bout of mid-career complacency, but more a deep comfort in style. From Suburban Legends to the twee-tastic Hutch and Kathy, hook-heavy pop is what Hutch Harris and Kathy Foster do best. Joining them will be the bong-rattling classic rock of Purple Rhinestone Eagle and the equally-as-stoney art-pop of Nurses—the latter of which will be debuting new material from the much-anticipated follow-up to their pristine debut, Apple's Acre.
