In the early days of Yo La Tengo there wasn't much of a plan, and things haven't really changed: the band still jam themselves into sweet spots that stir noise up with gorgeous pop melodies, making for songs anywhere between three and fifteen minutes in length. May I Sing With Me is one of their simplest attempts at this formula, and stands as one of their most hypnotic records, with Kaplan's guitar repeating and sparring with the relentlessness the band later used for songs such as "And The Glitter Is Gone". Recommended if you like indie rock and want to learn about the early days of a classic band.
