Yo La Tengo - "A Sudden Organ"

Yo La Tengo - "A Sudden Organ": "One of my favorite songs of all time. The beat is almost tribal in its pounding, punctured at dramatic moments by cymbal hits that feel like crashing waves. Like an ocean storm building, the organ part starts out minimal, but becomes increasingly frantic, the hard wind pushing the waves. Frontman Ira Kaplan's vocals are the calm in the middle of that storm, restrained but yearning. Pure YLT magic."
