Electr-O-Pura’s songs run the gamut from loopy pop to pensive folk to flat-out weird; their unpretentious honesty brings them together into a musically and emotionally satisfying whole.

I've known about Yo La Tengo since around 2013 when I got heavily into music but for whatever reason I never checked them out until this week.
I want to retroactively slap the piss out of myself for taking this long...

Amazing album.

Will for sure start chipping away at the rest of their discography.

Favourite song: Tom Courtenay
2nd: Blue Line Swinger
Worst: Attack on Love

In the end of the day, you just realize that you need some electr-o-pura, spiky melodies to make you feel alive.
