Back on vinyl for the first time in aaagggggeeeeeesssss!
Three years after "And Then Nothing", this is their eleventh album (in seventeen years) and it is another amazing record. Soft, hazy, languid and melodic, except for a couple of nifty, upbeat 60s pop songs; it's an album that will surprise as much as it will grow.
On Summer Sun, Yo La Tengo explore quiet the way they once indulged in loudness — as a means to a mood. Wandering farther down the path cleared by their last two albums, the Hoboken, New Jersey, trio disguises its guitars, minimizes its drums and makes plink-plunk sounds with its keyboards to conjure mystery, uncertainty and precious private moments. Jazzy instrumentation and dub-inspired studio manipulation share the foreground on shuffling, hushed workouts such as “Let’s Be Still.”
