Why See Yo La Tengo?
Eclectic trio Yo La Tengo take to the stage
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 , Closed March 23, 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.
Performance date: 23 March 2017
