Yo La Tengo - Summer Sun
A subtle stylistic shift from its predecessor ("And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out"). Upbeat, swinging, and sweet, but no less haunting. "An ethereal wonder"--US News And World Report. "Yo La Tengo has divided its devotion to the extremes of popular music, playing sweetly melodic pop songs and feedback-driven noise-rock with equally mesmerizing results"--Exclaim.
The latest from the brilliant Hoboken trio of Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley and James McNew finds them exploring the sunny landscapes of summer, in every imaginable mode of music. From the gorgeous "Little Eyes" to the ten-minute jam "Let's Be Still", this may be Yo La Tengo's most ambitious album to date.
