Yo La Tengo – There’s a Riot Going On [Matador]

“It’s awash in loops and effects, in sustained shimmering tones and percussion overdubs… there are echoes of late-1960s studio extravaganzas like the Rolling Stones’s Their Satanic Majesties Request, Tim Buckley’s Goodbye and Hello and the Beach Boys’ Pet SoundsNew York Times

“The hypnotic drones and shimmery rhythms suggest a blend of darkness and light that resides well below the surface. Granted, these cerebral soundscapes require the listener to lean in, but once engaged, the process becomes both mesmerizing and puzzling. It’s psychedelic cacophony on one level, but a sublime set-up on another” Paste

“Yo La Tengo capture the feeling of post-traumatic calm on their latest album, assuring their status as a wry and comforting cornerstone of indie rock.” – Pitchfork
