Night Falls (on Hoboken), Part 1

4 08 2009

batsMy favorite Yo La Tengo song is from the album And Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out. The song is Night Falls on Hoboken. And while it is my favorite YLT song, it is not the song I send people to when they want to learn more about YLT’s music.

The song is a beast of a track and not for everyone. It is over 17 minutes long – starting off as a slow strummer, gradually fading into feedback and tape loops, and then emerging at the end as gracefully as it started. The song brings you in, holds you under and releases you dazed and thoughtful.
