Yo La Tengo is a band that's been around forever and is beloved by indy-rockers. They alternate between feedback-filled guitar pop and trying to sound like The Velvet Underground on the mellower tracks. I bought this because I really like the song "From a Motel 6" when I taped it off of 120 Minutes. The rest of the CD is just as good but I have never felt like seeking out other Yo La Tengo records. I have a feeling that, like Superchunk or The Fall, they have tons of good material but you really only need to own one or two of their records to get the point.
