Yo La Tengo

Can't seem to stop listening to Yo La Tengo. For the last few days I have been crankin' them, almost exclusively. Love em'!

I like that you never know what you're going to get with each album. They always find a way of surprising you. Not to mention how brilliantly inventive and creative they are as a unit. And Georgia Hubley's voice..Wow.

The albums I have been listening to a lot are, And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out, I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One and Electr-o-Pura. All fantastically brilliant! To tell the truth, its taken me until now to give Yo La Tengo a really thorough listen. I'd heard some stuff before..But I had only had like, a real casual sort of listen. I'm glad I took the time to really absorb the tunes and get into these albums. It has been a rewarding experience.

I don't know how many of you, my faithful blogger army, use or have heard of the music program Spotify...But for those that have, and use the thing, I have taken the time to compile a playlist of Yo La Tengo songs from the three albums that I mentioned!


Yo La Tengo.


  1. I love Yo La Tengo. Every year they do a request only set for donators to the Freeform Radio Station WFMU, and a few years back they collected some of it onto the album "Yo La Tengo is Murdering the Classics" Totally worth checking out, because they will do anything even if they don't know how to play it.

  2. yo la tengo? idk spanish fluently but i dont think that makes sense :P

  3. niccce, fakebook is where i first heard them

  4. decent band, i like animal collective better :)

  5. Thanks a lot for the Yo La Tengo, but thanks even more for bringing Spotify to my attention. This app is awesome, and it's perfect for a music idea I've had for a few weeks. Thanks again!

  6. Always been a fan of I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One, personally. Great band, put out some really solid albums.
