Popular Songs


I feel like Yo La Tengo are well on their way to being the next Sonic Youth in terms of album consistency. They’ve released over a dozen albums over the last two decades or so and not one of them has managed to suck (in fact, the most recent I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass may have hit an all time high)…

It doesn’t look like they’ll be slowing down anytime soon either. Their newest effort, Popular Songs, will be out in the Fall and from the sounds of this newest teaser for it, it should more than live up to its name. “Periodically Double or Triple” has a nice sunny, ’60s surf vibe to it (LOVING that Farfisa organ!) that already guarantees it a spot on one of my driving mixes this summer.

You can taste it for yourself via Matador right now. The rest of the album is out on September 8. There’s talk of an impending Buy Early Get Now campaign for the album. There”s another Sonic Youth parallel for you for symmetry’s sake.
