Yo La Tengo @ Spectrum Culture
My contribution to "Holy Hell!," a new series which examines albums that turn twenty years old this year, is up over at Spectrum Culture. My pick was Yo La Tengo's breakthrough record, Painful, the first of several near-perfect albums.
As it turns out, this is my last piece for Spectrum Culture. I decided I needed to focus my attention elsewhere (like my own projects). By my count, I wrote thirty-something reviews, a dozen or so blurbs and three interviews for the site over the past eight months - that's a lot of writing! It was extremely flattering to be asked to write for them and I'm a little but sad to let it go but there are just so many hours in a day.
