Editors’ Notes Yo La Tengo embody every quality an indie band aspires to—prolific, eclectic, and staunchly nonconformist—and a handful of artists have managed to follow a similar path, taking stylistic cues along the way. Wilco capture the delicate balance between avant-rock noise and soft, melodic folk-pop, while Grandaddy add in slippery electronic effects and Spoon make every sweet hook sound effortless.
