Candy <3's The Thermals. Remember that time we went to see The Thermals, and I was like, the oldest person there? Kind of like that time going to see The Weakerthans made me feel utterly geriatric. Anywho, The Thermals' new album, the body, the blood, the machine, is a grower; didn't like it much at first, but I'm catching on finally. Is it bad that this video helped? It's got so many cameos of PACNW peeps, just like that Decemberists video of yore. Extra points if you can name everyone -- not just Emo'sIndie's The Major Labels' Ben Gibbard Colin Meloy.
