A decent listen, albeit one that feels a little too safe.

Fade is the 13th album from American indie rock band Yo La Tengo, released in January 2013.
It was recorded in Soma Electronic Music Studios in Illinois during summer 2012.

It marked as the band's first time hitting the Top 40 in the US Billboard 200 (No. 26)

I love the straightforward indie sound; it's peaceful, restrained and stripped back, feeling like something you'd hear during a live jazz session at a local venue.

Ira Kaplan's vocals are soothing and easy going, and fit really well with the overall sound.

However, as much as I enjoy these factors... Fade never does too much for me that makes me remember anything or wanna come back to it, even with it only lasting 45mins in length.

I still wanna check out Yo La Tengo's past discography since they do have an album out in the next few months that I'm excited for based off the recent single.
This just didn't enough memorability for me to wanna come back to it. Sorry.
