Yo La Tengo has a new album out called Fade and today on the show Milo Miles is going to share his thoughts on it. In the meantime, here’s a preview in the form of a video for one of the songs off the album. It’s called “I’ll Be Around” and the video was directed by Phil Morrison (of Junebug fame)

"I remember my son once asked me, “Did you ever, like, kiss in high school?” And I told him this long drawn-out story of how shy I was, how I finally got a girlfriend but she broke up with me because I was too shy to try to kiss her, and then I had another girlfriend but still couldn’t figure out kissing. The technique was always a big obstacle in my head, like, How do you kiss? Where does your chin go? Forget about anything beyond kissing-first base was a total mystery to me. So I’m telling my son this long story, and he listens patiently until he finally realizes where I’m going with it, and he says, “Dad, no-did you like Kiss in high school? Kiss, the band!” And I was, “Oh yeah, Kiss…they were good."
