brilliant album! best one they have put out in quite awhile
Awesome. Particularly the 1st half...
listening to the second half of this. I keep putting it on and thinking I love it, then turning it off half way through for some reason.
get a search function that works
and very subdued, to the point that its quality sort of snuck up on me gradually. Absolutely love 'The Point of It' and 'Cornelia and Jane'.
I nabbed a copy of it after it started streaming places. I didn't think I was going to fall in love with an album so, so early in the year, but here I am. I adore every square inch of the record. I'm super excited to head into town on Sunday, so I can pick up an actual physical copy.
I also feel like it's worth mentioning that I never got into Yo La Tengo before Fade, but now, I'm straight-up obsessed. This should be pretty fun.
Good to have you on board.
all great tracks, standing out at the moment for me are Paddle Forward, Is That Enough and Before We Run, but really everything is excellent!
watch them do Ohm on Jimmy Fallon (with extra drums from Fred Armisen and Kidd Millions)
I Saw The Light (Todd Rundgren)
Move To California (Times New Viking)
So beautiful. I loved Popular Songs, this is just different, more cohesive, less jukebox. I'd heard Stupid Things before and been quite 'meh' but it really makes sense in the context of this album.
Noticed the beat from Saturday being recycled on Two Trains. Guess I'll let them off in the circumstances...
Some bands just don't do bad albums. Everything is reliably good or interesting. Yo La Tengo is one of those bands.
Having been a bit underwhelmed by the last couple.
That album was pretty immediate and very eclectic though, I can already tell this one hangs together a lot better as an LP...
I think the longer pieces at the end let it down though - sequenced a bit strangely, and definitely not up to I Heard You Looking et al
Not so much now because I've heard it about four times. But yeah it is good.
The long songs being grouped together is maybe a bit odd though yeah. But the last of those is amazing.
the last in-store at Easy St Records
Stockholm Syndrome, still one of my favourites!!
