[SOUL MEETS MORE] When Thanks first arrived last year, the band was grounded in a decidedly soulful, nostalgic sound. With its debut album, Blood Sounds, the Portland sextet’s influences—and intentions—aren’t so clear. Thanks have crafted 12 youthful tracks, injecting notes of country, R&B and blues into the foundation. On “Hollow,” vocalist Jimi Hendrix (no really, that’s her name) sings like a calmer Janelle Monae, but the melody strikes like a grittier Florence and the Machine. The matching male-female vocals on “Undone” are well balanced, earn comparisons to one of last year’s dynamic indie breakouts, MS MR. Blood Sounds is a statement that could easily thrive in either a tiny boombox or on the national alt-rock airwaves.
