Yo La Tengo – posing for their Press Pop photo shoot
Given that James, Georgia and Ira have been on tour for pretty much the entire year since Fade was released back in January, you’d think we might have let up on twisting their arm for promotional opportunities, but with the promise of a good meal after, we persuaded them to record a BBC 6music session for Marc Riley last night. Playing Ohm around the 46 minute mark, they followed with some chat and two more songs, with renditions of Paddle Forward and I’ll Be Around from the 1:16 mark – listen to all of those here.
Gideon Coe’s 6music show followed where the band had pre-recorded Is The Point Of It, also online now. Currently on their way back to the US, their final shows of the year take place at The Bell House and are all sold-out.
