They love us and we love them. Veterans of indie rock who’ve seen it go through thirty years of change, Yo La Tengo have changed pretty much nothing about themselves, continuing to make long, yawning records of lovely twee pop, amped-up shoegaze more »

Yo La Tengo

"Electr-O-Pura" is from the heyday of Yo La Tengo albums: it's the one after "Painful" and the one before "I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One" and it's bloody brilliant. All the hallmarks of what makes Yo La Tengo great are here. There's the dreamy, shoegazey opener "Decora" which is followed by the mid-fi Krautrock groove of "Flying Lesson" an...view item »

Yo La Tengo
There’s A Riot Going On

My favourite genre of completely useless televised news is the “What’s your secret?” bulletin, where they find an elderly couple who’ve been married longer than we can imagine holding a short conversation and the interviewer asks them why they still want to sit next to each other. That, but, like, for bands -- you’d...view item »

Yo La Tengo

Back in 1990, I was a gangly Datsun Cherry driving, golf loving stick insect. It was around this time that I discovered Yo La Tengo and purchased this beautiful album from the proceeds of my job at the local petrol station (now bulldozered). Not only is it a great album but an education too. Through it I delved into the worlds of Gene Clark, ...view item »

Yo La Tengo
Stuff Like That There

It doesn’t matter how hard you try,  there’s no avoiding comparing this record to 1990’s superb ‘Fakebook’. This was the one where Yo La Tengo stopped making a racket, stripped down their sound to barely a whisper and raided their record collections for the finest songs you’ve never heard. It really was a...view item »

Yo La Tengo
Extra Painful

A band that is in existence for as long as Yo La Tengo will divide fans as to which is their ‘golden era’. I am seemingly one of the few who believe that the band went downhill after ‘I Can Hear the Heart Beating As One’, that its golden period was the three ‘90’s albums; the aforementioned ‘I Can Hear t...view item »

Yo La Tengo

I was massively MASSIVELY into Yo La Tengo for many, many, years. Pretty much from ‘New Wave Hot Dogs’ through to ‘I Can Hear the Heart Beating As One’, they were one of those bands I’d buy their new record on day of relea...view item »

Yo La Tengo
I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass

This album is now one of my favourite albums. The musical style of Yo La Tengo is present in each song even though each song is very different from the last. In fact I am hard pressed to classify this band as just one musical type because of the many styles of music they utilise in the creation of this album. Overall, this stands as one of the b...view item »

Popular Songs

I've not really followed the works of Yo La Tengo since 2000's 'And then nothing turned itself inside out'. The record is pretty good but doesn't touch previous greats like 'I can hear the heart beatingh as one' which led me to stray from the Yo La Tengo camp. I wanted to spend some time re-familiarising myself with the band but the Cribs have...view item »
