Ohm by Yo La Tengo

Yo La Tengo has been around FOREVER. Like, I had no idea the type of longevity these guys have had. They formed in 1984 in Hoboken, New Jersey (shouts out to the Jerz), and have had more or less the same core group of musicians since the start, and steadily released albums since then. Their discography is vast, but with such talent on the roster, they have some truly excellent work. They are frequently cited as a quintessential critics' band. Your friend whose a huge music snob loves Yo La Tengo. We're not music snobs here, but that doesn't mean we don't like YLT.  Their most recent album, Fade, was released earlier this year and is just excellent from start to finish. For a little taste of what's to be found on the rest of the album, take the song "Ohm." It's got hazy vocals, thoughtful lyrics, and some badass guitar to boot. Listen after the break.
