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

Product Description

Since starting out with a brand of folky garage-rock that owed as much to love (of bands like NRBQ and the Flamin' Groovies) as it did aptitude, Yo La Tengo have come a long way. And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out completes the transformation that the band began on Electr-o-Pura and continued with I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One; the Hoboken, New Jersey trio is now more of an experimental, dreamy rock band with an interest in sounds and an aptitude for textures. Moving away from Ira Kaplan's guitar, the band now often coalesces around wistful keyboards ("Our Way to Fall", "The Crying of Lot G") and gently loping loops ("Let's Save Tony Orlando's House", "You Can Have It All"); things do pick up now and again, and there is--as always--one genuine guitar freak-out. Over time, the husband-and-wife team of Kaplan and Georgia Hubley, together with James McNew, have gradually stopped imitating and paying homage to their forebears; here, they're meandering off in their own direction, taking their sweet time about it. For YLT, the journey is more important than the destination--and it's a beautiful day for a walk. --Randy Silver

5.0 out of 5 stars I Can Hear the Heart Breaking As One. 2 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
Those of you who are fond of recreational pharmaceuticals please be warned.If you plan on buying this album (if you can drag yourself away from Trance Nation 2004 that is )please do not listen to whilst high. Because you might never come back down- lost forever in a swirling vortex of hushed, breathy vocals and gently carousing instrumentation. There have been two dozen Yo La Tengo induced comas reported in the last twlve months in Britain alone. Dont let this put you off though, for this is possibly one of the most wonderful albums ever made. Right from the very start, as a disembodied heart beats steadily, you are encased in a bubble of lush strings and plaintive emotions as the five minute songs gently lull you into submission, and you stop whatever it was you were doing and just sit there, eyes closed, mouth slightly agape- transfixed and utterly paralysed. So complete is this inertia that when the calm is broken by the feedback drenched squall of " Cherry Chapstick " it feels as if you have been hit round the head with a frying pan, jolted suddenly back into the world and forced to sit up straight. Immediately after though, peace is resumed, and you soon find yourself cocooned for the langurous finale as Night Falls on Hoboken, and the whole world. The first half of the album is the strongest, and in "Tears are in Your Eyes" is crafted a pop song so beautiful and haunting it can (and has) made grown men weep. Some people may find it too slow and become fidgety, concerned with the lack of crunchy guitar hooks, but I really cannot recommend this album stongly enough to anyone with a pulse, I guarantee you'll listen to it everyday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic 15 Jun 2000
Format:Audio CD
It starts with a beat, like a heart but more discordant, a nod to the last overlong and oblique album title. "Everyday" tries its best to stay remote, and succeeds. You wonder why they've opened with this, its slow, a monotone. You'd call it a dirge, but you don't like to think Yo La Tengo do dirges. So you stick with it, all six minutes, and wonder if you'll be rewarded. You are. And how. Its no exaggeration to say that the sublimely beautiful "Our Way To Fall" captures perfectly the playful choreographing of two lovers coming together for the first time, its brushed drums and breathy vocals marching to a slow-time to-and-fro waltz. By now you're in for the ride. Yo La Tengo are in love and so are you. Ira plucks up the courage for the first dance ("Last Days Of Disco"), initial awkwardness giving way to give-in-to-the-moment contentedness. "the song said 'let's be happy'. I was happy"... Yo La Tengo fight, but tenderly. Love wins out on "The Crying Of Lot G". Ira talks us through an argument, or rather finds his voice after the slamming of the door. He's preparing his speech for when, moments later, mistakes are realised and forgiven. "Don't have to smile at me, don't have to talk, all that I ask is you stop and remember, it isn't always this way"... Like the tentative dance moves, words become simpler and simpler the more the truth unfolds: "the way that I feel when you laugh, is like laughing; the way that I feel when you cry, is so bad..." Georgia understands too, gently redressing the balance with "Tears Are In Your Eyes", a song seemingly written to make grown men weep. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Understated Intoxication 14 April 2000
Format:Audio CD
I needed a little bit of convincing to like this record, but I perceived and was rewarded. After the first couple of plays you will wonder what all the fuss is about, although in the back of you mind parts linger and gradually with more exposure it will all fall in to place. All the tracks (excluding the last '17mins!') are warm and understated without ever being sweet, with the album drifting along in a hushed whisper. Not one for the car or the walkman, but a pot of coffee and the sunday papers.

Yo La Tengo are a living legend, they deserve to be rated up there along side Sonic Youth, Bob Mould, the Fall and all those other truely great indie bands that have been fighting in the trenches churning out new, intelligent and innovative music for so many years now. If you liked the Flamming Lip's Soft Bulletin and Mercury Rev's Deserter Songs you'll love this. My favourite song is Saturday, the voice reminds me of Lou Reed in the Berlin era.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime and gorgeous album 4 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
Great and truly underrated band that may never occupy the limelight but will always be treasured by music lovers with a taste for offbeat and intelligent alternative pop. Someone once compared YLT to how The Velvets sounded on their self-titled third LP (NOT the banana sleeve one!) and it's true - there's a kind of electronic folk music taking place on 'And Then Nothing Turned..'. YLT have done 'poppier' albums (I Can Hear the Heart Beating.. is well recommended) but this is probably the one I've enjoyed most over the years.

I love it when an album's sleeve reflects the music inside, and this one really does. It's a quiet album so don't expect any killer riffs or hooks, but rather think of Nick Drake, that third Velvets LP and the likes of Elliott Smith. It's an album that takes a while to seep into the mind so subtle are the melodies and textures on offer, but it happens. The songs appear to be about the more subtle aspects of relationships, the conversations couples have behind closed doors, and the simple moments and turns that light up everyday life. I bought this record when it came out in 2000 and as we approach the end of the decade, it's probably one of my highlights of the noughties. Enjoy.
