Celebration, Thomas Function's debut album is one of the most fun releases I've come across this year. This Alabama crew built up a bit of a reputation from a couple of EPs and 7"s littered over the past year but this is the culmination of everything that early groundwork laid. Exuberant choruses, a penchant for 70's punk vocal inflections and downright catchiness are all in Thomas Function's corner. Mixing punk spirit with southern jangle-pop and blues into a tight squirming mess that tumbles out of your speakers in unabashed basement fervor. Coming out of Huntsville, Thomas Function's shamble pop sounds natural and unpretentious, its the kind of earnestness that most bands can't even begin to fake half as well, and I'd be lying if I said that this one hasn't been stuck in my head like an old favorite for weeks. The record's crashing your stereo at the end of the month (4/29) and if I were you I'd grab it on clear vinyl while they last - only 500 pressed!
