Since starting out with a brand of folky garage-rock that owed as much to love (of bands like NRBQ and the Flamin' Groovies) as it did aptitude, Yo La Tengo have come a long way. And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out completes the transformation that the band began on Electr-o-Pura and continued with I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One; the Hoboken, New Jersey trio is now more of an experimental, dreamy rock band with an interest in sounds and an aptitude for textures. Moving away from Ira Kaplan's guitar, the band now often coalesces around wistful keyboards ("Our Way to Fall", "The Crying of Lot G") and gently loping loops ("Let's Save Tony Orlando's House", "You Can Have It All"); things do pick up now and again, and there is--as always--one genuine guitar freak-out. Over time, the husband-and-wife team of Kaplan and Georgia Hubley, together with James McNew, have gradually stopped imitating and paying homage to their forebears; here, they're meandering off in their own direction, taking their sweet time about it. For YLT, the journey is more important than the destination--and it's a beautiful day for a walk. --Randy Silver

And this album plays in the background. There. A perfect summer's night is complete.
With the horrible winter storms we've been having, I'm glad Yo La Tengo have created THEIR BEST (yes, their best, even better than "I can hear the heart beating as one") album to date, yet, surprising, their most low-key effort as well. This album is a quiet whisper to the heart. Not a single track on the album goes to waste, except perhaps for the ill-fated "Night Falls on Hoboken," which does run 17 minutes and 41 seconds. Yet it is a lullaby, a way to take a break from the conscious feelings of love and the pain it can bring. The more upbeat tracks, "Let's Save Tony Orlando's house" (the most cleverly titled song in existence), "You Can Have it All," and "Cherry Chapstick," merely mingle in with the quieter, softer songs such as "Last Days of Disco" and "Our Way to Fall."
If you've been a long fan of Yo La Tengo, you will not be dissapointed by this new effort, as they are easily recognized. But personally this album will probably remain my favorite among all YLT albums, past present and future. For I have a passion for those hot summer nights, where all the world is sleeping, yet I remain awake and remember.
"Everyday" is the long opener I'm talking about. It is pure mood and relaxation. Second comes the very jazzy and very beautiful "Our Way To Fall". Such a nice song. Makes you want to go out and pick flowers for a loved one. Not too cheesy, though. Just perfect. "Saturday" finds YLT pulling out the sweet 80's drum machine. Very hollow sounding but still maintaining the vibe of the album. This song is slowly becoming one of my favorites on the album. Probably my favorite on the album is the next song, "Let's Save Tony Orlando's House". This is what Stereolab SHOULD sound like. Sorry Stereolab fans - I know that will make someone unhappy. What an incredible song, though. I just love Georgia's voice. It fits the song perfectly.
If you have never heard these guys and are thinking about maybe checking them out, you MUST buy this album. You'll be glad you did. You'll just absolutely love to listen to this when you go on a road trip. It will make the journey much more soothing and laid back. You may hope you never get there.
Also, check out "Tears Are In Your Eyes", "Madeline", and "Night Falls On Hoboken". There are no bad/boring songs on the album.
Of course, the album is not void of the characteristic Yo La Tengo soaring indie-pop tracks. In "Cherry Chapstick," Kaplan's guitar is amazing, and the track rocks like any other the group has ever produced. Since I first heard "I Can Hear the Heart..." I've been completely in awe of their percussion ideas. "Saturday" and "Last Days of Disco" have kept me very much hungry for more.Read more ›
