The New Year is an American indie rock band that formed in 1999. The band was started by former Bedhead members Matt and Bubba Kadane. They released their first album in 2001, Newness Ends, which like their following albums was recorded with Steve Albini.
The New Year worked and reworked Snow for years: between day jobs, across state lines, whenever they could find a spare moment. A few songs date back to the late-aughts; others have come in the years since. That Snow sounds very much of a piece with the Kadane’s back catalog is a testament to their singular and durable sound. From the sunburnt shuffle of Myths to the rangy push-and-shove of Recent History, they know just how far can stretch themselves without upsetting the balance
Snow (LP, Album, Whi + CD, Album). Grand Hotel Van Cleef, Grand Hotel Van Cleef, Grand Hotel Van Cleef. GHvC 113, TNY4-LP, TNY4SNOW-5M00R. Potentially The New Year's most eclectic album to date. I immediately latched on to the more familiar styled songs, but within a few days, I'd embraced the entire album. Really amazing work from one of the most influential indie bands of the last 20 years. I suppose I'll always be partial to their core sound. This album should not be missed. Reply Notify me Helpful.

The New Year imagined, worked, and recorded this piece off and on for that entire duration, stealing a few hours during travel, organizing their schedules between jobs, and gradually piecing together what can finally be called an album. As a result, we have an offering that sounds every bit the part of its conception: spaced out, deliberately patient indie-rock that, while firmly rooted in the band’s past, still occasionally forays into the unknown
