The New Year...getting all sorts of Internet love. (Allison Smith)

The New Year (Kinda) Quit Their Day Jobs

The New Year has been getting love all over the world wide interweb this week: We loved the local boys's new disc, Pitchfork did, too, and now Stereogum is showing them the love.

The New Year was spotlighted in the site's weekly feature “Quit Your Day Job.” While not only giving the band props for their “instantly memorable melodies and smart, emotionally naked lyrics” the site also spoke with Matt Kadene about his job as a college professor at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.

It's an interesting read, if only to hear about a rockstar not named Greg Gaffin being a college professor. --Lance Lester
