*** Résumé en anglais seulement ***

Matador Records is pleased to present the deluxe reissue of Yo La Tengo’s 1993’s classic Painful, in time for the band’s 30th anniversary this December. This special package, dubbed Extra Painful, is a 2 LP that includes bonus Shaker 7” in picture sleeve with ephemera, photos, original band-aid sticker, the first YLT Gazette in 14 years, plus liner notes by Matador’s Gerard Cosloy and the band.

This release includes three unreleased songs from the original Painful recording sessions. In addition there are locked loops of alternate versions of “Big Day Coming” and “From A Motel 6” in the runout grooves of LP 2.

“Anyone who ever said they liked our older records more than Painful, I just told them they’re wrong.” – Ira Kaplan

“Yo La Tengo existed for almost a decade before Painful. But the Yo La Tengo we know and love begins here. It was the first to feature the lineup that continues on today, matching married founding members Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley with most excellent, James McNew. It was the first to be produced by Roger Moutenot, who would oversee every subsequent Yo La Tengo album up until Fade. And it was the first truly great collection of work from a group that would become one of the definitive bands of its genre. As Kaplan explained during a live interview I attended last month at Ohio University — and then demonstrated during a concert later that night — the band still draws heavily from Painful for its live sets, whereas the prior albums have been cast off to obscurity. And that makes sense. Painful was a gigantic step forward, the sound of a budding indie institution coming into its own.

How many Yo La Tengo archetypes were crystallized here? “From A Motel 6? and “Double Dare” are the kind of noise-pop burners that would be refined down the road with “Tom Courtenay” and “Sugarcube,” the sort of songs where Kaplan’s feedback-seared guitar heroics are wrangled into concise structures, their explosiveness harnessed as rocket fuel. He’s allowed to roam free on “I Heard You Looking”; it’s one of Yo La Tengo’s patented guitar pile-ons, a churning web of overdriven chords and solos morphing and crackling against the rhythm section’s steady backbeat. Hubley’s “Nowhere Near” and Kaplan’s “A Worrying Thing” are hushed ballads worthy of 2000's near-perfect album-length sigh And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out. “Sudden Organ” nurtures the percussive accessorizing that would become one of YLT’s tricks in a deep, deep bag of them. A wobbling twee cover of the Only Ones’ “The Whole Of The Law” set the stage for plenty of doe-eyed duets and killer covers to come. And with the quiet and loud versions of “Big Day Coming,” we get the dualistic interpretations that would become one of Yo La Tengo’s signature maneuvers.” – Stereogum
