by Yo La Tengo
Released: Jan 2013
Fear not: Yo La Tengo have not gone brostep, or witch house, or Mexican New Wave, or anything else on Fade. Yo La Tengo they proudly remain, which means more warm, sweet, gorgeously somnolent, perpetually fuzz-addled guitar-pop lullabies that beloved indie power couple Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley softly sing directly into each other's ears, and yours. This is a record for sleepy dusks and sleepier dawns, with the Krautrock pulse of "Stupid Things" the quiet highlight: "I always know that when we wake up/ You're mine." Their hearts still beat as one, and you'll never be more grateful.
