Yo La Tengo – I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass (2006): Half Notes

Share this:

by Tom Johnson

An eclectic and, for lack of a better word, spazzy releases, Yo La Tengo’s Beat Your Ass actually worked because it lacked focus. Rather than get bogged down in one particular style, the band instead pretty much covered every bit of territory they have ever touched upon. It may seem a bit schizophrenic, but it makes for a hell of a fun listen.

‘Half Notes’ are quick-take thoughts on music from Something Else! Reviews, presented whenever the mood strikes us.
