"YLT's generosity of spirit was never compromised by their bursts of Zappa-like experimentalism, the band's genius residing in the creation of a big sound that was also intimate and emotionally engaging."
Since their debut in the mid-Eighties, this folk-indie rock band has flown under the mainstream radar but remains to this day a quintessentially critics band. Although they write and perform the majority of their material, they have garnered critical acclaim for performing cover songs. 2015 marks their 30th year of recording, and they have recently released their latest album Stuff Like That There in anticipation of their upcoming tour. They will be hitting the Town Hall Theater in New York , NY , showing for one date only on 23 Mar 2017!
The trio's laid-back and multi-layered psychedelia exists somewhere between sleep and lucidity; dreamlike soundscapes quietly defy current pop music trends to form minimalistic yet exquisitely crafted songs. Their live shows are master classes in dynamic range with three-part harmonies that lull the audience before giving way to swathes of noisy, blissful guitar fuzz.
Their most famous album was the spookily-named Fakebook in 1990, which marked a departure from their earlier acoustic roots into full-scale folk, and their newest effort has been dubbed as its sequel. Not content with recording albums for themselves, they have also scored instrumental film soundtracks including Jean Painleve's eight undersea documentaries in 2001, entitledThe Sounds of the Sounds of Science.
