Fair, Jad and Yo La Tengo – “Strange but True ” – [Matador Records]

Mr. Rogers, our own J.C. Clone and Jad Fair
must all share the same gene, they’re all in
a chromosomal zone that tweaks the voice on
the nose, and completely scrambles the mind.
Somewhere David Byrne is walking in a grass
suit under an overpass listening to this on
a walkman made entirely out of old dental
fillings. Yo La Tengo paints the backdrop,
short little poplets beneath Jad’s talllllll
tales. Sort of Dr. Seuss in convenient
tabloids tablets. Take two, they’re small
and they’ll improve your mood. Just released,
but recorded a while ago. I would have been
happy with more “monkey” business.
