The New Year, “The End’s Not Near” (Touch & Go, 2008)

Bedhead were one of the, um, sleeper hits of the 1990s indie era, always finding new ways to work melodic, softly-toned songs into frothing post-rock anthems that somehow still featured whispered vocals. The New Year grew out of Bedhead, but hasn’t been that prolific. Nevertheless, the Kadane brothers are back, and as usual it’s a contemplative journey through spare guitars and steady builds. Maybe it’s the action movie fan in us, but we really expect there to be an enormous explosion behind the cyclist in this clip. Is that wrong? — Thomas Rooker White
