5.0 out of 5 stars Beach Party Tonight!, 18 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Summer Sun (Audio CD)
Yo La Tengo - they've been around longer than the Flaming Lips, right? Yet like the Lips, they're producing some of the best music of their career, but thanks to much subtler use of electronica and acres and acres of keyboards.
Beach Party Tonight is a gorgeous, wispy opener that never really starts, leading into Little Eyes. Little Eyes, a lush tune, much like Season of the Shark, both carry a passing nod to Grandaddy, but with gentle, soothing vocals and calming keyboards. The songs themselves are deep and very mature (as you'd expect from these oldies), and these two are probably the most mainstream on the album.
Today Is The Day is a beautiful, seize the day moment in typical Yo La Tengo laidback tones - the guitar lines are lazy and suggest a contradiction to the subject matter in their ability to while away the day. Don't Have To Be So Sad and Nothing But You And Me are brilliant examples of keyboards being used to drive a song, or to let it flow wistfully - Nothing But You And Me a brilliant example of this.
This album is a great chill-out album - and we should be thankful that many people discover it because of it's relaxive properties. Yet there's so much more to it than that - brilliant musicianship, gorgeously understated vocals, and miles and miles of mature human comment. A gem.
