Yo La Tengo:: I am not afraid of you and I will beat your ass (Album Review)

Twenty-two years into a career that’s embraced everything from surf instrumentals to free jazz and underwater documentary soundtracks, Hoboken’s veteran indie trio return with another genre-straddling gem. 2003’s hazily homogenous Summer Sun was obviously a blip, as its successor ricochets blithely but brilliantly between ten minute guitar wig-outs (Pass The Hatchet), country-tinged indie nuggets (Sometimes I Don’t Get You), and beautifully arranged chamber pop songcraft (Black Flowers, replete with drummer Georgia Hubley’s sublime harmonies). At 77 minutes it’s no sprint, but YLT’s mellifluous serpentines are never less than involving.
