Yo La Tengo is one of the most beloved and respected bands from the United States. They have turned from their cult underground beginnings into a band that’s often mentioned in the same breath as Sonic Youth, The Breeders and Teenage Fanclub.
The band from New Jersey was founded in 1985 by versatile guitarist Ira Kaplan and his wife and drummer Georgia Hubley. Later on bassist James McNew was added to the line-up. The band has been going strong for over 30 years. They have played the best clubs, festivals and museums, topped best of lists from the music press, collaborated with other big names in music and even had a cameo in The Simpsons.
Yo La Tengo released “There Is a Riot Going On” earlier this year, the fifteenth studio album that came out through the renowned label Matador. The title of this album was borrowed by the well-known funk classic by Sly & The Family Stone, recorded by an infuriated and frustrated Sly shortly after the roaring sixties. The members of Yo La Tengo are convinced that we live in similar times nowadays.
Instead of fear, anger and despair, Yo La Tengo does prefer a calmer means of protest: this album features short, sweet songs, warm ambient and extended instrumental songs.
