Painful by Yo La Tengo
Released: Jan 1993
Label: Matador
An excellent guitar album, Painful is the band's first to get the balance right between their pop and drone sides. "From A Motel 6" is a great head-nodding indie rock jam while "Nowhere Near" shows how easily the band can capture the sound of stark, dimly lit roads. A beautiful take on the Only Ones' "The Whole Of The Law" is another reason to listen to this album.
