Is it a counterintuitive move on our part to make the first publicly available song from Yo La Tengo‘s forthcoming ‘Fade”, the album’s epic finale? Perhaps. But far be it for me to accuse you of over-thinking this stuff. The visual portion of the above clip comes courtesy of acclaimed animator/filmmaker Emily Hubley, while this isn’t the first (or even the second) time her work has been formally associated with Yo La Tengo, we were more excited about this sort of sneak preview than say, simply posting yet another MP3.
