Yo La Tengo - This Stupid World (2023)

Post image

This record is so refreshingly old school.

Like similarly discordant outliers, Sonic Youth, it’s a messy, chunky but palatable goulash.

Most agreeablely dished up on re-cycled blue vinyl.

There’s a fabulous trick, that’s exclusive to vinyl, where the end of side two loops for infinity.

It’s a drone I could listen to forever (and nearly did).

Ira Kaplan’s guitar on “This Stupid World” is particularly angry. “This stupid world. It’s all we have!”
