CONDO FUCKS FuckbookLike Green Day with their Foxboro Hot-Tubs outing, US indie legends Yo La Tengo have decided to kick back and knock out some garage riffs under an assumed, albeit vulgar, name.

The guitars are chugging and spiky, the recording is sloppy and ifs bags of fun. Sounding like a long lost Stooges session, Fuckbook is a muscular punk rock album that plays like it was recorded all in one go.

Garage rock and sixties pop are the blueprints for Fuckbook and to their credit it isn't just of one pace. 'This Is Where I Belong" slows things down for a summery slice of Kinks-like pop, even though the vocals are barely audible due to the rough and ready recording style.

This is a refreshingly loose and fun album that feels like spending a warts-n-all hour in the rehearsal room with your favourite local garage bond.
