The guitar work on this album is fantastic. Beautiful, eiry, minimal, doesnt sound like a guitar, ambient. Id say this is one of their best and most mature release thus far. It is so chill and beautiful. Sincere lyrics at points sung in a sweet off key manner as only yo la tengo can do over what sounds like a cr-78 drum machine (although quite possibly a Rhythm ACE, as I believe they use an organ from the same company ACETONE- anyways sort of clicky lofi cheap sounding) in places or brushed drums in others and low droney organs. The whole album has this soft melancholic atmosphere. Time slips in and out of place with snipits of reality intertwined. Although it is very laid back, Id say it is quite abstract lounge music. The title of the album sort of sums it up. My only real complaint is the song Cherry Chapstick. Although it is really wicked, reminding me of their earlier intensity, it sort of sticks out like a sore thumb in comparison to the rest of the album. The last track is a fantastic droney ambient piece clocking in around 17minutes.
