Hutch & Kathy (of The Thermals)
Hutch & Kathy (of The Thermals)
Hutch Harris and Kathy Foster have been melting hearts and faces for so long in The Thermals you’d be forgiven for forgetting about the Hutch and Kathy LP. Released just a year before (The Thermals’ debut) More Parts Per Million, Hutch and Kathy is at once a perfect precursor to The Thermals, as well as worlds away from the chaotic noise Harris and Foster would soon come to embrace.

Hutch and Kathy is a pop record. It’s a folk record. It’s a heartfelt personal journey through love and loss. Sunny and melodic in some places, dark and dramatic in others, Hutch and Kathy is a traditional indie record with just enough quirk and personality to make it entirely original. And how it holds up! Hutch and Kathy sounds as fresh and fun as it did back in 2002. The record has aged almost as well as Harris and Foster themselves. Seriously, have you seen these two lately? What do they do, drink blood? It’s really not fair.

Hutch and Kathy was recorded and performed by Harris and Foster in their home studios in Portland Oregon in 2001, originally released on CD by Jealous Butcher Records in 2002, and now finally sees its first ever vinyl release just in time for Record Store Day 2015.
Laura & Greg
Laura & Greg
The two met in 2013 at Greenpoint’s Manhattan Inn and quickly hit it off over a late-night scoop of vegan ice cream. When asked if she could do an American accent, Laura (who is Australian) said no, but that she could do a pretty good Disney imitation & sung a few lines of The Little Mermaid. Greg, who had been looking for someone with whom he could start a new music project, was impressed, and the pair had their first band practice a few days later.
