Smoke Notes

The Americ-indie institution that is Yo La Tengo strikes again, with a killer album that could be a best of or a compilation disc, it's that diverse. It's almost as if the trio decided that after a career that's spanned two decades they can just do whatever takes their fancy on any given day in the studio - epic pop soundscapes one day, soulful jazz-inspired torch songs the next.
Luckily for them, it totally works, with the delightfully titled I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass skipping from one unexpected turn to the next without ever being in danger of losing the listener. Fans of NZ's own The Clean (as YLT are) will recognise the college-rock quirky keyboard tricks and awkward lyrical positioning here, but there's a shoe-gazing pop sensibility to this band that defies easy categorisation and gives them a bit of a Belle and Sebastian feel - without crossing into twee territory.
Overall this is another great collection from one of the cutest bands around, highly recommended for the southern hemisphere summer.
