Autumn Sweater

I did a little fall purchasing this weekend, preparing for exactly what it is today - cold, dreary and begging for oversized sweaters and rainboots. I also did a little wandering through one of Toronto's biggest and most beautiful parks before stopping into a few stores, one of which led me to rediscover a favourite chilly song of mine from Yo La Tengo's 1997 album I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One. 1997 - can you believe it? Well over a decade ago, a progressive song like this was hailed as innovative and the peak of their jazzy rock compilation. Today, it still sounds lovely.

As one of my favourite 90s indie and experimental bands, they were some of the first of their kind to make music like this; music that triggers this wonderfully mellow kind of spaciness. It's five very cozy minutes that fit like a glove all these years later. Enjoy!
