Talkin' trash to the garbage around me.

Painful

This classic is fitting my subdued mood this evening. I sometimes forget how much I love Yo La Tengo, and the Painful album in particular. For me, it evokes long evenings driving through the lower South, on the way from Apalachicola to Memphis; a moody soundtrack by which to pass the drowzy hamlets, lonely truckstops, and fellow travellers on the night-time highway. At their very best (and I think this album ranks up there with their very best), Yo La Tengo's music is able to convey a sense urgency with such intimate and beautiful simplicity. Absolutely gorgeous music that is associated with some of my most cherished memories.
