i can't say anything about this band (or bedhead) without sounding like an annoying, overzealous fan. they are as far from crap as you can get, i think.

the kadanes' entire body of work is untouchable, and the new year are the world's best currently active rock band.

The first time I heard Bedhead, we were driving down the West Coast. My friends loved it. I could not give a fuck.

Somehow I got a copy of _Transaction de Novo_. I listened to it once or twice. I had no interest. But I liked the way it looked and the way the paper felt in my hand, so I kept it.

Every few months, I used to throw a bunch of my records out the window--the ones I liked for forty seconds and then realized were crap. When the window was open, I'd pull the ones that I never listened to, and I'd play them to make sure I didn't want them anymore. _Transaction de Novo_ made it through at least six rounds until I didn't even consider it anymore.

I don't know why it took so long. I suppose it's because I have a combination of ADD and dyslexia, and I happen to be a facist. I have no patience. I have no attention. I couldn't wait for those fuckers to play the next note. I couldn't listen to those spaces.

But I understand now because I tried to play it.

It's genius. Delicate and deliberate. And difficult.

The New Year is good. I know it's a different band, but it feels like those guys got tired of holding their breath. They're just letting the fat roll over their belts now. Which is okay since they're not really fat.

Very very not crap. "Alter Ego" is one of those crowning moments in music - a ball-blistering brain-swellingly fantastic song.

And as for Bedhead and "Transaction de Novo" - if I was a teenager in school still and lusting after a fair damsel, I'd be putting "More Than Ever" at the start of her free mix tape.

Yeah, "Alter Ego" is the one with the "I want you to shut up" lyric. My favourite lyric from that song is from the start: "Of the acceptable reactions to tragedy: gardening, the priesthood, insanity...". God, I love that song.

going on the assumption that people on this board would have similar taste in music to myself, i've been looking through the crap/not crap board to find new music. new year/bedhead are definitely my two favorite bands that i've been able to find so far. i got addicted to this stuff. its really amazing.

Postby Domagoj on Fri Sep 02, 2005 3:42 pm

"the End is Near" - the best album in 2004 in Agram.
jesu holds close second place.
I even got strangly sick in the late summer of the same year.
Soundtrack for CFS.

Last night I dreamt there was a new record by The New Year.

I had it on vinyl. The artwork was weird. Like a sheer black cover with two red lines intersecting in the centre. I played both sides and it was incredible. I am sort of terrified that my subconscious is capable of creating a an entire album of songs by The New Year just to fuck with me. The first song was called 'House of Blankets'. That's all I remember.

The new material I saw them play this summer was great. Matt plays keyboards a lot. They said they were recording it this August, and it should be out sometime next year. Your dreams, they are answered, Tommydski!
