The cardigan-cozy sound of the record effectively established Yo La Tengo as indie rock’s great romantics, and featured a couple of significant firsts for the trio.

Yo La Tengo made a major creative leap forward with 1992's May I Sing with Me, where their yin-and-yang mix of quiet and loud finally began to work as well as it was meant to, but 1993's Painful was where they truly hit their stride, their first album to confirm they were one of the best independent bands extant. Ira Kaplan's buzzy guitar freakouts had made it to vinyl before, but Painful gave them better context, with songs that were well suited to his noisy style

It’s hard not to feel the lonesome draw of the dimly lit road pictured on the cover of Yo La Tengo’s Painful. It’s also hard to say what about the image is so depressing, and yet so attractive at the as well, but it’s there all the same. The band Yo La Tengo is made up of guitarist/singer Ira Kaplan, his wife, Georgia Hubley on drums/vocals, and James McNew on bass and keyboards. When they released Painful in 1993, the band was known to critics as a force to be reckoned with, despite meager sales.
