The New Year – “Folios”

Published by at 3:14 pm under MP3's

The past few weeks, I’ve been frequenting “Folio,” the first track on The New Year’s self-titled album which releases September 9th. I love the instrumentals in this song. The band reminds me a lot of John Vanderslice,  Midlake, and Beulah.

Prior to forming in 1999, The New Year were the Bedhead. The band is comprised of Matt and Bubba Kadane, Peter Schmidt, Mike Donofio, and Chris Brokaw. They are located in various areas across the US and make music by sending each other tapes, and by meeting up for recordings and tours. Matt and Bubba Kadane (who live in Ithaca, NY and Dallas, TX respectfully) intended to be a duo, but asked their longtime friends to help support them on tour, and they gradually became part of The New Year. This album is going to be The New Year’s first release in four years, and they will be supporting the album on a US and Europe tour.
