8/10 Li'l Biz 04 September 2009
I've not really followed the works of Yo La Tengo since 2000's 'And then nothing turned itself inside out'. The record is pretty good but doesn't touch previous greats like 'I can hear the heart beatingh as one' which led me to stray from the Yo La Tengo camp. I wanted to spend some time re-familiarising myself with the band but the Cribs have hindered my progress considerably and i've not found the time to mull over new L.P 'Popular Songs'. Saying that, i've had a few thoughts.....Yo La Tengo will always be good and will probably always write great records. Album opener 'Here to Fall' is a bold, sweeping progressive pop song in vein Air, it's a great track. Second track 'Avalon or Someone very similar is a reminder of why Yo La Tengo are super sweet. Soft, blissed out indie pop fully refined due to years of loving care and attention. Final two tracks 'The Fireside' and 'And the Glitter is gone' are totally psyched out mini epics of the like i've never heard from YLT. I look forward to finding more time to spend listening to 'Popular Songs', it sound like a grower to me. Not quite album of the week but certainly better than 'Ignore the Ignorant', 'Popular Songs' is certainly worth further investigation. Yo.
