Product Description

Product Description

Triumphant tenth album explores wintry landscapes of love, relationships and life.Out of print since 2005. Now available with MP3 coupon


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

The inspired, deep blue packaging of 'And Then Nothing' depicts a funky patch of New Jersey suburbia gobbled up in twilight. Almost completely cropped off the edge of the cover is a man in a pool of light, looking curiously at the out-of-frame alien ship which is obviously preparing to blast him with a pain ray or employ some horrifying probes on his body. Nevertheless, the obvious emphasis of the charming photo is the firefly-laden neighborhood, quiet, cozy, ready for bed. The appeal of Yo La Tengo's most recent album resides in their stubborn adherence to the same understated, relaxed formula, approaching each theme and lyric with much musical and poetic delicacy. The dark opener 'Everyday,' the guitar powered 'Cherry Chapstick' and the lounge instrumental 'Tired Hippo' all fit neatly under the magnificent skirt of the album's closer, 'Night Falls on Hoboken.' In it, Ira Kaplan begs his lover for the chance to make good a love gone bad (can't we try? can't we try?) - emotions worthy of the loudest wailing - here contained in a lilting, unspeakably gentle lullaby that ebbs on for over 17 minutes. It's breathtaking, and it caps an album so neatly and coherently about the moments in life charged by their quietness... forget the aliens, forget the pain ray.

Imagine a warm humid summer night, one of those nights where wearing a cotton t-shirt becomes uncomfortable very quickly, where sweat jumps from your pores, shrieking and sizzling, evaporating into the night sky. Imagine a cool tall glass of iced tea, a cold beer - some refreshing beverage. Imagine a padded swing out on a porch of a normal middle-class house, looking out into the normal backyard that has a garden of flowers and assorted vegetables. Imagine staring at a bug-zapper, shining that bright blue irredecent color with an occassional casualty-sounding ping. Imagine the first time you knew you were in love.
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.

Starting this album I just knew I was going to like it. In looking at the cover of the album while listening to it, I feel like I'm in that neighborhood.
"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.

Following "I Can Hear the Heart Beating As One," "And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out" is easily the one of the best of Yo La Tengo's efforts, and quite possibly the loveliest album I've heard in years. Echoing other reviewers, I could not describe this record better than as a beautiful, musical conversation between lovers, Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley. We follow their relationship from their first meeting (e.g. "Last Days of Disco"), falling in love (e.g. "Our Way to Fall"), their arguments and struggles (e.g. "Tears are in Your Eyes") and everything else in between. I wish I could write a more in-depth, contemplative review of this music. I wish I could make some meaningful, sophisticated comparisons of "And Then Nothing..." with other records in the catalogue. But I can't. It's incomparable. I wish I could more romantically describe the emotions put forth in these songs. But I can't. Neither can Kaplan in songs like "The Crying Lot of G": "The way that I feel, when you laugh/Is like laughing/The way that I feel, when you cry/Is so bad." Whose description can make the happiest feeling in the world more joyous? What's worse than bad? There is no need to manipulate or make the words and emotions expressed in this album anything other than what they are. They are ALL about love.
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.
