Yo La Tengo’s Ira Kaplan on Marc Maron’s “WTF”

Perhaps having tired of interviewing such nobodies as Lorne Michaels, CM Punk, Steve Albini, Tom Arnold, Matt Sweeney, The Amazing Jonathan and Barack Obama (sadly, not on the same episode), Marc Maron today welcomes Yo La Tengo’s Ira Kaplan to the garage . Bob Odenkirk and David Cross stop by as well, though perhaps they were taped on different days. I have no idea how Marc feels about people hanging out in his driveway waiting to talk, but I don’t think I’d like it one bit.

Ticket links can be found below. News regarding HÆLOS’ hotly anticipated full-length debut will be unveiled very soon, and we’re (not so quietly) confident that Arthur, Dom and Lottie have delivered a deep, super-crafted knockout album that far surpasses the material you’ve heard to date.

Coming Soon : the deluxe edition of Spoon’s ‘Gimme Fiction’


News flash for our friends beyond North America : Spoon’s classic ‘Gimme Fiction’ celebrates its 10th anniversary with a deluxe limited-edition version on 180g double-LP, double-CD, released on Matador in early 2016 (Merge‘s domestic version will be available on December 11, as will Matador’s digital download version). The reissue (released by Merge in 2005 and licensed/simultaneously released by Matador for territories outside of North America) contains the original album newly-remastered by Howie Weinberg from the original tapes, a second disc with 12 previously unreleased demos from the era, a digital download of nine additional bonus tracks, and a full-color book containing photos and an extensive oral history of the making of the album by The A.V. Club’s Sean O’Neal. The deluxe LP package will also include a 24″ x 36″ poster and a digital download of all songs.

‘Gimme Fiction’ dragged the sonic pointillism of Kill the Moonlight further into dub-influenced weirdness as the increasingly confident Spoon went crazy in the studio, experimenting with everything from warped hip-hop samples to horse whinnies. Whatever digging or strange alchemy had to go into it, they only produced more gold.

‘Gimme Fiction’ deserves special recognition as the album where Spoon took creative and stylistic quantum leaps that resulted in classics “I Turn My Camera On,” “The Beast And Dragon Adored,” “My Mathematical Mind,” “I Summon You” and so many more. 10 years later, ‘Gimme Fiction’ gets the deluxe vinyl release it so richly deserves.

Listen to and share the demo version of “Was It You?” and experience the oral history of ‘Gimme Fiction’ via the band’s Tumblr, which includes videos, excerpts, and images from the album’s creation and campaign.

Preorder ‘Gimme Fiction’ on LP or CD
