by Yo La Tengo
Released: May 1995
This 1995 record balances Ira Kaplan's tremelo-heavy guitar adventures with the band's unending, shimmering sense of melody. "Pablo & Andrea" is one of the band's finest quiet moments and "Tom Courtenay" is a stunningly perfect pop song. Other tracks like "Flying Lesson" and "Blue Line Swinger" continue in perfecting their exemplary drone pop.
