Hutch and Kathy (The Thermals) to reissue LP

The Thermals precursor Hutch and Kathy to reissue self-titled debut on vinyl on Record Store Day.
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 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.

The album 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.
