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

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
