The New Year return with their first record in nine years but Matt and Bubba Kadane have been busy during this time - releasing a comprehensive box-set of their former cult band Bedhead (the 90s band seen as one of the founders of the slowcore rock movement) and also joined David Bazan and Will Johnson in the band Overseas putting out an album in 2013. Snow was recorded in many studios including the likes of Steve Albini's Electrical Audio and then polished up over many years with the obsessiveness you would expect from the Kadane brothers. Yet as ever their music flows out the speakers in such a carefree and confident way that juxtaposes the intricacies of their writing and recording process where not one guitar note or tom hit is out of place. Sure to be loved from the moment you stick it on for fans of the band already or their previous band Bedhead and even those yet to delve into the Kadane brothers music. It's an instant classic!
