Genre - Alternative

Not yet reviewed.

Matador are pleased to announce a 25th anniversary reissue of Yo La Tengo's 1995 album Electr-o-pura. Now in a gatefold sleeve and cut from the original 58 minute master, the new reissue is pressed for the first time on two LPs to ensure the highest quality of audio the album has had on vinyl to date.

On their seventh studio album, Yo La Tengo would further expand on the venturous songwriting established on their previous album Painful with stunning craft and a deepened exploration of contrasting textures, moods and atmospherics. Chock full with moments of pop gold like "Tom Courtenay," melancholic ballads such as the heartbreaking "Pablo And Andrea," and sweeping, feedback-laden jams like the show-stopping "Blue Line Swinger," Electr-o-pura is a thrilling document of one of America's most beloved bands hitting their creative stride and remains one of the most sublime records the band has released in their uninterrupted 36-year career.

"A subcultural tour de force" - Robert Christgau, Village Voice

"Some of the finest things the band has ever recorded" - Stereogum

"Combining homespun charm, critical sophistication, and a fan's enthusiasm, Yo La Tengo sounds like a well-adjusted Velvet Underground. Electr-O-Pura's songs run the gamut from loopy pop to pensive folk to flat-out weird; their unpretentious honesty brings them together into a musically and emotionally satisfying whole (A)" – Entertainment Weekly
