Tunes: Yo La Tengo :: Tiny Desk Concent @ NPR Music

16 Apr

Putting on a Yo La Tengo record and immersing yourself in the music is a spiritual journey. In January, the band released its 13th album, Fade, to critical acclaim and positive reviews. The album could be one of the best of 2013 when its all said and done. Since 1984, the trio of Ira Kaplan, Georgeia Hubley, and James McNew have paved the way for indie and experimental rock musicians. Many have anointed them the heirs to The Velvet Underground’s lo-fi legacy of sound. As Otis Hart of NPR Music writes:

The band epitomizes, sheepishly, why so many were drawn to indie rock in the 1990s: the casual resolve to be yourself and let everything else sort itself out.

Check out the band playing a lovely set from NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert series featuring ‘Is That Enough’, ‘Tears Are In Your Eyes’, and ‘Ohm’.
