Yo La Tengo want to beat your ass!

Yo La Tengo

The great new album from Yo La Tengo is now available from your favourite record shops and at eMusic. "I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass" features some more muscular tracks than the previous "Summer Sun" cd. It starts with the rumbling squalfest of "Pass the Hatchet..." (see mp3 link below) and proceeds through 77 minutes to touch base with most song styles you can think of ending with the fuzzed out "Story of Yo La Tengo".
An in-depth review can be read over at Pitchfork.
They are on tour this autumn and I hope to catch them at The Sage, Gateshead.
If you have never seen the wonderful spoof that The Onion did on the band follow the link below!
