Yo La Tengo!

The Beatles. I'm kidding.

The Beatles. I'm kidding.

I didn’t I liked these guys. I thought they were some kind of lo-fi Velvet Underground wannabes, and if you’ve heard one of them you don’t need to hear any more.

But they’re not like that at all – they’ve got loads of stuff going on, psychedelic guitar epics, punk-ish stuff, ambient piano pieces, and loads of other good things.

I risked 15 Emusic download credits on ‘I am not afraid of you and I will beat your ass‘, and I’m glad I did. The only problem with it is that it’s about 75 minutes long, andI’m not all that keen on albums that long. Which is a pretty stupid complaint to have about stuff this good.

The great thing is that they have released 15 or so albums – I have so much catching up to do. And that’s agood thing.
