was listening the other day to the (new to me) yo la tengo album from last year

super mellow, so much so at times it veers into ambient (but it’s not all ambient).

 


there’s no riot here. for me definitely a late night album

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
And I'll get on my knees and pray
WE DON'T GET FOOLED AGAIN...

Nice

Hey have you heard Fade from 2013? I forget.
That one’s good. Very strong, bleary, fuzzed our, melancholy record. Nice front-to-back listen.

From Magnet magazine, August 2015:
Exclusive Excerpt: Yo La Tengo Interviewed By Actor Michael Shannon

Quote:

For three decades, Yo La Tengo has been one of the most important, diverse, influential and, well, best bands on the planet. Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley and James McNew (along with former member Dave Schramm) revisit their classic Fakebook album on its 25th anniversary with latest LP Stuff Like That There, an odds-and-sods collection of covers, reworkings and new songs. MAGNET had Oscar-nominated actor—and longtime YLT fan—Michael Shannon sit down with Kaplan, Hubley and McNew to talk about their little corner of the world.

Yo La Tengo. "I have it." Along with being one of the most formidable three-pieces in recent rock history, they indisputably have one of the greatest band names, as well. So banal yet exotic; so ethereally ambiguous, capable of embodying optimism and pessimism in equal measure. What do they have? The answers? The solutions? Or some affliction of the soul? All I can say is, after I heard I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One for the first time, they had my undivided attention. This band seems capable of inhabiting so many different realms, despite their claim that they aren't terribly proficient at playing their instruments. On their new release, Stuff Like That There, they present yet another wonderland of popular and obscure covers, the occasional new song and, yes, covers of their own songs, which is where things get really interesting. Because when you listen to the new version of "Deeper Into Movies," you realize you have aged quite a bit since the first version. Not just in years, but miles traveled, thoughts and feelings collected and expelled. And so has the band. And the song you used to rage to is now the song you listen to whilst sitting in your armchair sipping an IPA and staring out the window. And it’s the same song! That's what Yo La Tengo has. I don't know what it's called, but I need it. Recently, I sat down to chat with them. I had no idea what to ask, even though I had been thinking about it for two weeks. So, here it is. —Michael Shannon

^ That's the intro; a good portion of the interview follows. Michael Shannon ROCKS!

"I was a huge My Blody Valentine fan. Kevin and I met, and I just adored him. He has an abstract way of speaking that takes you right to the spheres. I gave him The Coral Sea and we sat among all his guitars and pedals at his studio in Camdem. We just trusted each other. We didn't do any practising. Kevin wanted a sofa onstage. During the performance, something happened with one of his pedals and it got louder and louder. I couldn't concentrate, so I threw the book aside and improvised the rest of it. At the end, I just laid down on the sofa and listened to Kevin. He was creating world upon world, taking me to a place where language was obsolete. That evening was an uncompromising merger of rock'n'roll and poetry, and it's one of the things I'm proudest of."

—Smith in 2012 on their performance at the 2005 Meltdown festival, which she curated.


"She curated Meltdown [in 2005] and it was also Robert Mapplethorpe's anniversary, and she had written a poem, The Coral Sea, about him, and she said I'd like to do something. She really liked Loveless. You know, Cat Power was also involved. It was me, Patti and Chan [Marshall] together. They came to my studio and we got chatting and Patti was really inspiring. She said, 'We've already won, we're doing this.' She showed me the book, explained how she liked to go off on tangents and we really connected. I really believed in her.

"I'd stopped using the tremolo arm in 1997. I'd purposely started using envelope filters when I played with Primal Scream [Shields was a touring member of the band between 1996 and 2006 and played on 2000's XTRMNTR and 2002's Evil Heat]. But one of the coolest things that happened with The Coral Sea was that Patti inspired me to start playing guitar again like I used to. We talked about it for three or four hours; we didn't even rehearse. Then I prepared a bunch of guitars, got it all ready to go and just was like, 'OK.'

"Then we did it onstage, in 2005. It was totally improvised. Then a year later, we did more. The second one was way more chaotic. I drowned Patti out, I went way overboard. I was too noisy, and that gave me a kick in the ass. But it was intense, focused on the moment, and then we got a double CD album out of it."

—Shields in 2019.
