That song is brilliant.
My God.

Can't wait for this album.
We need The New Year, and it sounds like they're coming back in the best way.

I think "Seven Days And Seven Nights" sounds downright romantic.


Fwiw, I dated a woman who was an inner-city social worker and far from a music geek and she fell in love with this song after I burnt her the album.

Hello!
The New Year's incredible new album Snow comes out tomorrow, but Radio NOPE is having a listening party tonight. Like: NOW.
http://www.radionope.com

We'll be playing the entire record starting at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific.

On top of that, we'll be giving away a copy of the record on white vinyl! Just get into the chat box and play The New Year trivia; the winner will receive the record.

Tune in!

Picked up the new album this morning.

Transaction de Novo will probably always be the tip-top Kadanes effort to these ears, but I declare Snow the best album by The New Year start to finish. Really dig the Rhodes-y keyboard stuff.

Nice work, those who had a hand in making it. Cool record.

Stayed up the better portion of last night listening to the record over a few times. They're still the gold standard. The Beast is one hell of a song. Such a great record.

Snow is excellent and beautiful.

I hope there will be a live programme.

"Stop thinking about how they've done that and bask in it's majesty, you idiot."


Also: I was thinking about the artwork of their albums. Specifically, how the colours effect the perception of the music. It's weird.

New album is amazing. Trying to take my time to absorb it and not obsessively listen to it for the next month straight.

Finally picked up Snow. I don't know why I was a complete idiot and waited so long. It is fantastic. I'm only a few listens in but right now it feels like the best thing they've done.

Best part of Snow is the guitars after the first singing part in "Amnesia".

Not sure what's so good about it. It sounds really good.

A couple song endings are maybe weird, but "Snow" could go on forever. That would be just fine.

Drums are great. Some stuff is pretty straight, but their rhythm is otherwise twisted, which is really what makes them good.

Not crazy about the mind/body problem lyrics or whatever, but they're easy to forget, and better than the addition song from the first album. What do I know (nothing) about how much someone should drink, but the I in Matt Kadane's songs should probably stop going to parties.

Snow is really fantastic.
Never heard a band make so little go so far. It's hard to explain why it's so damn good.

Official PRF album of 2017 and deservedly so!
