Show Review

"Avalon or Something Very Similar" is sort of trippy in its' odd, geometric configurations. There is the soft green meadow of what looks like Brooklyn's Prospect Park. Kites shoot up in the air (flying machines reminiscent of their previous video, in a way), and triangle cut outs, all dancing on a line, courtesy of a stop motion approach. Not sure what director John McSwain's getting at here. But the results are somewhat mesmerizing. Don't be surprised if you trail off through the peace of it all.

Artist Bio

Yo La Tengo is one of the most beloved and respected bands in America. For nearly thirty years, Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley and James McNew have enjoyed success entirely on their own terms playing the worlds best concert halls, museums, and dives, dominating critics lists, doing a Simpsons theme, playing the Velvet Underground in I Shot Andy Warhol, sharing stages with some of the most important musicians of our time, and even creating a holiday tradition onto themselves with their yearly series of Hanukkah shows at Hoboken, New Jerseys legendary club Maxwells, from which theyve donated hundreds of thousands to charity.
