Maybe not, but certainly a ... um ... rockin' New Year, as evidenced by the few seconds of new music previewed in the trailer below, for the band's eponymous release due September 9 on Touch and Go. The label has just released the song titles and album cover (oooh, fall colors!), but this trailer's all the new music you'll find thus far. At least, till Matt and Bubba Kadane and Peter Schmidt play the Granada on June 28, the last of three Texas shows next month. --Robert Wilonsky
