The New Year Starts The New Year Off The Same Way It Ended The Last Year...

...which is to say that The New Year is still receiving plenty of love for its great self-titled 2008 release (and from people other than us!). Today, Stereogum returns to The New Year well to offer up a free mp3 of the song "MMV" from the band's recent disc.

Furthermore, Matt Kadane gives the site a solid background on the track's history, which you can read as you can listen to the track's stream. Oh, and, if ya like it, give the site your email address and you can download this and all future 'Gum Drop downloads each week for free.

Or just buy the damn album already. You already know we approve of it. --Pete Freedman
