I lead with an admission, and a daring one at that. Though their career spans 16 records, and is this year celebrating its' silver anniversary, somehow, someway, the frenetic sounds that Yo La Tengo have been churning out of Hoboken New Jersey all these years has eluded me. Which makes the trio's latest release, Popular Songs
(Matador), a first. Never have I ever pulled up a chair with any one part of the band's mighty catalogue. Criminal, I know.
