Yo La Tengo: Fade
Buy! - (Matador)
The veteran Hoboken, NJ trio's 13th album is a beautifully crafted set of autumnal indie-pop. With John McEntire of Tortoise/Sea and Cake instead of longtime producer Roger Moutenot behind the boards, the album still sounds like no one but Yo La Tengo. The sound is warm, low-key and inviting, though also sonically adventurous, seamlessly blending expansive psych-rock, motorik German prog, trippy folk-rock, orchestral pop and more on songs that are both emotionally moving and brilliantly constructed. 1/11/2013 - Don Yates
