Yo La Tengo - Popular Songs, out September 8 - I just finished my first listen to the whole thing so I don't have a definitive response, but the general feeling is YLT FTW. They play to their strengths, skip the things that bugged me about I An Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass, which, well, didn't. It might even please my friend George, who is less enthusiastic for YTL's noisier side than some more open-minded listeners.
This is the song that won me over
And this is the one that will likely win everyone over
and one more, starring Times New Viking as the band
