Yo La Tengo - Summer Sun


I can't believe I haven't uploaded this album yet. This is definitely my favorite Yo La Tengo record. This album more than any other they have done sounds like The Velvet Underground performing in a Jazz club. I remember when I saw them live, and was expecting to see three low key people playing their music and saying little, jesus was I wrong. The performance was pretty insane, guitar solos, and rapid movements were par for the course. Favorites on this album are Season Of The Shark (which sounds like a childhood lullaby), Today Is The Day (tell me she doesn't sound like Nico), and Don't Have To Be Sad. Here.

You wouldn't happen to have a line on the new Louris/Olson "Ready for the Flood", would you?
