YO LA TENGO

More from this Band



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 Oneand 2000 s And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out. 
The album is a tapestry of fine melody and elegant noise, rhythmic shadow play and shy eyed orchestral beauty, songfulness and experimentation. 
But Fade attains a lyrical universality and hard-won sense of grandeur that s rare even for this band. It weaves themes of aging, personal tragedy and emotional bonds into a fully realised whole that recalls career-defining statements like Blood on the Tracks, I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight, or Al Green s Call Me. Soft, gentle, persuasive, melancholy, beautiful and triumphant in turns, the effect is both heartbreaking and reassuring.
