Song of the Day - September 1, 2006

The Thermals have released a concept album of sorts called The Body, The Blood, The Machine involving a supposedly hypothetical situation in which the US government becomes controlled by a group of fascist Christians. For some reason, lead singer Hutch Harris' vocals remind me of John Darnielle; possibly it is their vocal patterns or how they structure their lyrics. Regardless, they both make great music. "Here's Your Future" begins with a church-like organ, only to launch into Hutch Harris' rant about the second coming and a dismal outlook for a misguided USA. The guitars rock, the energy is high, the riffs are catchy, and the lyrics make you contemplate what can happen here in the USA. What more can you want for the song of the day?
