YO LA TENGO - There's A Riot Going On - 2 x LP € (Matador)
Double LP comes on coloured vinyl.A play on the title of the Sly And The Family Stone album ‘There’s a Riot Goin’ On’ - an album of dark, brooding energy that came out in a time of unrest in the USA. Now, under similar circumstances, Yo La Tengo have issued a record with the same name but with a different force, an album that proposes an alternative to anger and despair. Their first proper full-length since 2013’s ‘Fade’, ‘There’s a Riot Going On’ is an expression of freedom and sanity and emotional expansion, a declaration of common humanity as liberating as it is soft-spoken.
