by Yo La Tengo
Released: Sep 2009
Consistently slavered-over indie rockers Yo La Tengo make it difficult for naysayers to disagree with the critical mob on their 12th album. Husband and wife Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley don't just write songs that effortlessly speak to their encyclopedic knowledge of rock 'n' roll, they have made a science of recording this deceptively simple music. "Here to Fall," "Periodically Double or Triple" and "Avalon or Someone Very Similar" are indisputably good indie rock songs, but the real joy is in listening to these drums. They're ... miniature! And the guitars are like glass.
