Short Takes: Music: And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out

Yo La Tengo

On their 10th album, garage rockers Yo La Tengo--married singer-songwriters Georgia Hubley and Ira Kaplan, plus bassist James McNew--turn down the amps, shut the garage door and head up to the living quarters. Fifteen remarkable tracks later, we've learned that the adult love song--gentle, small, intimate--is very much alive. Kaplan and Hubley sing about love imperfect, illuminating the tiny lies that keep couples apart and the humor and empathy that draw them back together.
