Lens Records is a Chicago based record label created to help support and distribute the works of artists who prefer to work with a smaller, artist driven label. The label has released a variety of work in different genres including ambient, experimental, dark ambient, electronic, rock, modern classical, electroacoustic and field recordings...
With song titles like “Mushroom Cloud of Hiss” and
“Five-Cornered Drone (Crispy Duck),” May I Sing With Me is
classic Yo La Tengo, merging pop and noise in an awesome
aural display. Songs start with Kaplan’s repetitive (and very
simple) chord changes, as Hubley and [at the time of this
recording] regular bassist James McNew add layer after
layer of supportive sound. During the noisier tracks (especially the aforementioned “Mushroom Cloud of Hiss”), the song explodes in paroxysms of feedback and drops the rhythmic pulse altogether, eventually returning the backbeat after a few minutes of white noise. That may not be everybody’s cup of tea, but for those who like this adventurousness and recklessness, it’s a lot of fun.
