Q: Do you like Yo La Tengo?
If you found yourself desperately screaming “yes” and clawing at the screen, then ‘Fade’ marks yet another distinctly brilliant entry into the Yo La Tengo canon, with beautiful sounds, inventive songwriting and a ceaseless sense of love and passion for their craft. If, on the other hand, you found yourself shaking your head in disagreement, then ‘Fade’ is yet another bunch of songs which don’t really sound alike and don’t keep your attention. I’m part of the former crowd.
