Bedhead/The New Year

Post by marqueemoon » Tue Apr 28, 2020 4:52 pm

Any fans here?

I've been listening to The New Year's Snow pretty heavily the last few days. The Kadane bros. have made some of my favorite recorded guitar sounds ever.

Usually live albums are rather underwhelming, but I think "Live In Chicago" is actually a great place to start, because it contains some of (in my opinion anyway) Bedhead's best material, and they absolutely kill it it live.

Love them. Caught the new year open up for shellac in Austin back in '05. The new year's latest offering is awesome.

Yeah. I’ve seen The New Year live twice. They’re great. I slept on seeing Bedhead before they called it a day. Definitely regret that.

So many good tracks on Snow. The Party’s Over is my current jam, but it’s constantly changing.

Heck yea, discovered "whatfunlifewas" when it first came out because I was into the other Trance label stuff out of TX. Loved it, even though it sounded nothing like the other stuff I'd heard on that label. Got to see TNY in Chicago for the Touch and Go anniversary and it was incredible. I think they had a 5 guitar thing going on at one point, one of the most beautiful things I'd ever heard.

Be sure to check out Overseas too, which is Matt/Bubba plus David Bazan of Pedro The Lion.

Transaction De Novo is one of maybe my top 100 records of all time. Just gorgeous.
