Yo La Tengo - I'll Be Around


Fade is the most direct, personal and cohesive album of Yo La Tengo's career. Recorded with John McEntire at Soma Studios in Chicago, it recalls the sonic innovation and lush cohesion of career high points like 1997‘s I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One and 2000’s …And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out. The album is a tapestry of fine melody and elegant noise, ... Read more in Amazon's Yo La Tengo Store

Editorial Reviews

Yo La Tengo's 11th album is a relentlessly satisfying, slyly low-key affair with shimmery organs, muted soft-brush drumming, loping bass lines, casually strummed guitars, and interlocking rounds of hushed vocal harmonies. Yes, this is Yo La Tengo we're talking about, a band that formerly rivaled the Dream Syndicate in feedback squall--tastes of which do appear on the uptempo "Cherry Chapstick." Nothing is the most the trio--Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley, and James McNew--have explored their interests in atmosphere, drone, and minimalist song structure since a handful of '90s club dates under the name Sleeping Pill. So, the consistently subdued tone is not without precedent, and any YLT fan knows that they have steadily evolved and reshaped their sound since forming in 1984. But what is remarkable about Nothing (aside from its erudite genre-mixing and USDA-choice melodies) is that it's consistent; this is the group's most coherent, thematically linked CD since 1990's Fakebook. As further cement, it has never been easier to decipher what husband and wife Ira and Georgia are singing about: their love for each other, from flirtatious first encounters to the arduous task of surviving skirmishes. Subtle and surprising--the singing alone is to die for--the record squirms away from whichever genre trap one attempts to fashion for it. Just call it indie rock for grownups, turn it up real loud, and get lost. --Mike McGonigal

5.0 out of 5 stars endless love February 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is easily the most lo-fi, acoustic effort of the last four YLT discs: softly ticking drum machines, spacy guitar atmospherics, not-so-sudden organs and whispery vocals are the m.o. here. One exception: "Cherry Chapstick," which sounds like "Sugarcube" injected with a healthy dose of Sonic Youth's "Teenage Riot"--and it's amazing. The album starts off slowly, almost shyly, with the ethereal "Everyday," but by the third or fourth track, it becomes all-consuming. This is the most seamless YLT since "Painful"--even after the 17th minute of "Night Falls on Hoboken" (and the 77th minute of the disc), you'll want to do it all over again. (I have nothing against "I Can Hear the Heart," but come on, dear reader, tell the truth, you don't always want to sit through "Spec Bebop" in its entirety.)
How does it stack up to previous YLT records? Who cares? Beginning with "Painful," they have produced 4 of the most intelligent records of the last ten years. And to top it all off, Ira and Georgia are still in love: I'm surprised the "family values" ideologues don't jump on the bandwagon--YLT might just make marriage cool again.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE VERY BEST GET EVEN BETTER March 20, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Although it cannot be said for many, many bands, many, like fine vintage wine, just seem to get better with age. The magic threesome that is Yo La Tengo (married couple Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley and rotund bass master James McNew) return with what could very well be their finest CD. A truly perfect album that dishes out songs about love, loss, pain, joy, distress, loneliness, and suffering. Songs that echo with pleasant and vicious guitar licks, kick mud in your mamma's face drumming, and absolutely gorgeous singing. The haunting opener "Everyday", the bouncy "Let's Save Tony Orlando's House", the brilliant cover of "You Can Have It All", the savagely beautiful "Cherry Chapstick" w/ a guitar solo that kicks you while your down, the depressingly gorgeous "Tears Are In Your Eyes" and the dreamy, "Night Falls On Hoboken" are just a handful of the magnificent songs that encompass this excellent album. This is one fan who couldn't get enough of "I Can Hear The Heart" and who has made a new space in his CD player for this one. Also, if you haven't checked out YLT live, do yourself a favor, they are tourning right now (3/00) so go see a show, you will not be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Night music February 22, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Quiet, meditative, intimate and lovely. Pefect music to listen with the lights down low. Yo La Tengo has managed to totally redefine themselves while staying true to form. And damn it all, they've gone and created another lo-fi masterpiece again. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars where I belong, where I belong... May 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've had this record for a while, so I can't remember If I wrote a review or not, but anyway---listening to again, and it's always lovely each time. Albums like this prove you don't need over-top-performance and aggressive euphoria to make great masterpeices. The only real rocker is "Cherry Chapstick". For the most part, it's extremely atmospheric, subtle, emotionally understated, gently hallucinogenic, quietly trippy music. In synopse, a good trip and a great album. Whether you can relate to the love relationship-centered lyrics or not, if you dig emotionally and mentally stimulating music at all, you'll be sure to get lost in the softly meditative textures.
P.S: "Night Falls On Hoboken" is one of my favorite songs of all time, along with let's say "The Diamond Sea" or something. A gentle acoustic shoegazer ballad with hushed vocals that gives way to 15-some minutes of droning, meandering blissful tones and noises.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revelatory February 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I was never a huge fan of Yo La Tengo, until now. I went to see them in concert in Philly last weekend, and was in the second row. It was the best concert I have ever been to. If you get the chance, see them. As for this new album, I find it almost as stunning as "I Can Hear the Heart Beating As One." It moves me, shifts me, breaks me, and puts me back together again. I will never be the same. My bf and I just hold each other when this disc is on. It's that kind of feeling. Pure, unadulterated bliss.

5.0 out of 5 stars YLT Grows February 22, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A fantastically adult record, for sure. I sometimes feel too much like a grownup when I express my distaste for the angst and schmaltz of so many current bands' music. But YLT makes me happy to be pushing 30, happy that my life is where I want it to be, and happy with where I'm going. There comes a point in our lives when we figure out that life is not about being happy ALL the time, but about enjoying those moments when we are. YLT mirror that philosophy with this record.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best album of 2000? August 2, 2000
By sask
Format:Audio CD
I've had Yo La Tengo's latest cd And then nothing turned itself inside-out since April, and after close to four months, it still sounds as great as it did the first time I heard it. It's perfect, and that's something I don't say very often...I can count all the 'perfect' albums I've heard since 1995 on one hand: Pulp's Different Class, Moby's Everything Is Wrong, Bob Dylan's Time Out Of Mind, and Lucinda Williams' Car Wheels On A Gravel Road. Even more amazing is that it is a whopping 77 minutes long but never feels like a second is wasted.
So what makes And then nothing turned itself inside-out (the title lifted from a line in a Sun Ra song) so great? Everything about it, that's what. First, and most obviously, is the music. Yo La Tengo's previous album I Can Still Hear The Heart Beating As One was hailed as a great album by critics, and although it was the group's most accomplished record at the time, stylistically it was all over the place, as endearingly eccentric as The Beatles' White Album. And then nothing... is more focused. You still get the wide range of Yo La Tengo song styles, like minimalist dirges ('Everyday'), kooky instrumentals ('Tired Hippo'), Velvet Underground tributes ('Tears Are In Your Eyes'), feedback-filled rockers reminiscent of Sonic Youth ('Cherry Chapstick'), beautifully melodic tunes ('Madeline'), an epic-length song ('Night Falls On Hoboken'), and a token cover ('You Can Have It All'), but despite the continued variety of song styles, everything is toned down a bit, with each song retaining a similar feel throughout the album.
Lyrically, the songs are more personal than ever. And then nothing...
