Yo La Tengo-Fade

90s Indie legends prove they still got it

Yo La Tengo have been making mellow music for your mind for quite a few years now and their latest album Fade proves that they still got it. This is perfect music to just turn on and relax to. Let your mind wander as the sweet chords of “Is That Enough” take you away. “Paddle Forward” on a flowing river full of nature’s most wondrous sights. Take “Two Trains” out to the country, as the fields pass you by through your window. Basically what I’m trying to say here is that this is relaxing, melodic music that you should be listening to RIGHT NOW. Oh and P.S. watch out for that vicious organ.
