REVIEW: "Fade" - Yo La Tengo

Yo La Tengo impress as usual with their new album and my first listen of 2013. "Fade" is their fifteenth album and first with producer John McEntire who has worked previously with the groups Tortoise and Sea and Cake just to name a couple. While all of the hallmarks of a classic Yo La Tengo album are present here, the band takes new risks and makes a few mistakes resulting in an album that is, while certainly not the finest this group has produced, a worthy entry into their catalog and a fabulous way to start off a new year in music.
