Yo La Tengo – “Ohm” Video & Triple 12″ Pack

By Gerard on Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

While Yo La Tengo continue their global touring in support of what’s likely to be considered one of 2013′s top albums, ‘Fade’, we’d like you to STOP WHATEVER YOU’RE DOING right this moment and focus intently on the album’s first song.

The second video from ‘Fade’, “Ohm” was written and directed by Donick Cary, with animation created by Sugarshack Animation, and was produced by Dejda Mishkovsky. Fans of “The Simpsons” might recall Cary’s writing credits from such episodes as “D’ohing In The Wind”, “Thirty Minutes Over Tokyo” and “The Last Temptation Of Krust”. Apparently they still give awards for music videos and after watching “Ohm” multiple times, I’m sure you’ll agree it’s a good thing the band invested in an extra large trophy cabinet.

(NOTE TO OUR FRIENDS IN GERMANY : if by some chance the YouTube version of the above clip is blocked, try here instead)

We’re releasing a limited edition triple 12″ set of multiple versions of “Ohm” ; 3 12″ singles with a printed flat in a 4-box poly shower curtain display case. There’s metal grommets in the curtain if you’d prefer to display it on your wall (or, if you’re especially nuts, in your shower).

Contents :

ORANGE COVER —- Ohm (album version) b/w Oriole (mix 12)
RED COVER —- Ohm (live rock version) b/w Oriole (mix 15)
BLUE COVER —- Ohm (live quiet version) b/w Oriole (mix 29)

All versions are unreleased except the original version. Each 12″ pack comes with a download coupon with all the tracks plus the radio edit of “Ohm”.

We’ll be selling the “Ohm” 12″ triple pack early at the Matador table during the CHIRP Record Fair at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago’s Union Park, starting Friday afternoon, July 19. However, you can preorder The “Ohm” 3X12″ from The Matador Store today.. It’ll be in finer record stores on Tuesday, July 30.

Belle and Sebastian Add 2 Dates to July Tour of North America

By Nils on Friday, May 17th, 2013

Due to overwhelming demand (by Oprah and Mormons, apparently), Belle and Sebastian have added Santa Barbara and Salt Lake City to their swelling North American July tour. While the band has started working on new material, Stuart Murdoch has said these shows are likely to be all back catalog, though anyone who’s seen the band knows their sets can vary wildly from night to night, so we recommend attending every show (except NYC, which is SOLD OUT). Check out this recent interview with Stuart, where he talks about his recently-completed God Help The Girl film, and working on new material.

5 Montréal, QC / Festival International de Jazz de Montréal with Here We Go Magic

Yo La Tengo – Live, Wednesday AM on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic”

By Gerard on Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Yo La Tengo’s box office smash North American tour in support of album-of-the-year candidate ‘Fade’ hits the West Coast this week with scalper-bait shows at LA’s Fonda Theatre (Thursday) and a pair of nights at San Francisco’s venerable Fillmore (Friday and Saturday). Though Ira, Georgia and James have done a number of radio sessions already in 2013, they’ve not visited KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic” in far too long (OK, there’s probably more recent appearances, but this was the first one to pop up in a search).

Tomorrow morning, “far too long” becomes, “no, they’re on right now”. Tune in Wednesday at 11:15am Pacific time (2:15 pm eastern, 7:15pm for our friends in the United Kingdom) and you’ll hear Yo La Tengo playing, well, whatever they feel like, as well as chatting with MBE host Jason Bentley. Admittedly, I’m guessing about the chat portion, but anything else would be kind of rude, don’t you think?

KCRW

‘Fade’ – available from the Matador Store on LP, CD and digital formats

(ADDENDUM : Hector reminds me that Yo La Tengo last appeared on KCRW in 2000.  My apologies — I’m new here!)

Yo La Tengo Free All Ages Instore

By Michael on Friday, April 26th, 2013

Austinites (Austinians? Austintonians?) get psyched because Yo La Tengo are coming for you with a free all ages instore and Austin’s ever-awesome End Of An Ear. That’s right… all of you who were oh so bummed when The Mohawk announced YLT’s show on Friday May 3 was SOLD OUT can rejoice in your newfound chance to see this band in such a personal and intimate way.

But if you don’t live in the Live Music Capital you should still check out the band on their lengthy tour, on which the band is playing an absolutely stunning two-part set.

Yo La Tengo tour starts tomorrow

VIDEO : Yo La Tengo’s Tiny Desk Concert For NPR

By Gerard on Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Not to get hung up on the details, but Bob Boilen’s desk really isn’t that tiny. I mean, compared to the working conditions for anyone visiting Patrick & Robby’s office, it seems positively spacious (HINT, HINT). And yes, I do know where the reference comes from, but there’s a little thing called TRUTH IN ADVERTISING that you might not be familiar with.

These minor gripes aside, thanks so much to Mr. Boilen and National Public Radio for hosting Ira, Georgia and James for the above acoustic performances of “Fade”‘s “Is That Enough” and “Ohm”, and “Tears Are In Your Eyes”, from 2000′s ‘And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out’.

Yo La Tengo and AC Newman Attempt To Extract Your Cash For WFMU

By Gerard on Monday, March 11th, 2013

(above : James and Ira, struggling gamely with Silver Convention’s “San Francisco Hustle”.  Photo courtesy WFMU)

Venerable WFMU, oft-hailed as the finest listener supported free-form station in the world (or alternately, “almost as good as WSOU”) is in the midst of their annual fundraising marathon. Though there’s prizes & premiums galore, your real reward is an astonishing amount of live and archived material the station makes available over the airwaves, online, and soon, via mental telepathy (this is only part of reason why they spent two weeks a year shaking you down).

Yo La Tengo’s vaunted covers-for-cash performances during the WFMU marathon are a 17 year tradition, as Ira Kaplan points out, and this Thursday at 9am EST, not even a concert tour of Germany will  stop Ira, Georgia, James and longtime associate Bruce Bennett from once again, murdering the classics (and perhaps the not-so-classic.)  This will mark the first time Yo La Tengo have done their covers-for-WFMU broadcast from a remote location (or if  you prefer, Berlin), and you’ll undoubtedly want to remember that for some kind of Matador Trivia Night we intend to hold in lieu of a company Xmas party later in the year (more on this later — it’s a sensitive subject).

In addition, A.C. Newman will throw himself into the entertainment firestorm that is Tom Scharpling’s “The Best Show On WFMU”, tomorrow night at 9pm EST.

Yo La Tengo : April/May US North American Dates, Summer Shows With Belle & Sebastian, Solid Sound Fest and more

This past Saturday night, Yo La Tengo completed the first run of North American tour in support of the universally hailed ‘Fade’ with a show at New York City’s Town Hall described by by more than one person as “triumphant”, “stunning” and “kind of long”. Though Georgia, Ira and James are off to Europe this week for some of the continent’s most anticipated shows this year, they’ll be back in the USA (and Vancouver!)  this April and May for the dates below, followed by July shows in outdoor venues with Belle & Sebastian.

With the exception of the Baltimore date on April 26 supporting Beach House, for the April/May headlining dates Yo La Tengo will be the only band playing.  As with the January/February shows, they’ll be playing two sets each night with a brief intermission.

April
26 Baltimore MD, Lyric (with Beach House)
27 Asheville NC, Orange Peel

16 Portland OR, Wonder

In addition, as announced elsewhere last week, Yo La Tengo will be part of Wilco’s annual Solid Sound Festival in North Adams, MA taking place between June 21 and June 23.  In addition to a full set of their own, Yo La Tengo will be performing a live score to “The Love Song Of R. Buckminster Fuller” (dir – Sam Green)

If an outdoor festival with a tremendous bill isn’t to your liking (allergies, tendency to fall asleep behind the wheel — BUT ENOUGH ABOUT ME), you can catch Yo La Tengo’s live score for “The Love Song Of Buckminster Fuller” on April 9 and 10, at The Kitchen (512 W. 19th St., NYC) with performances at 7 and 9pm each night. Tickets are available here.

‘Fade’- available from the Matador Store on LP, CD or an array of digital files.

Yo La Tengo on NPR’s World Cafe today

Last month, Yo La Tengo played before a packed, rapturous house at Philadelphia’s World Cafe Live as part of WXPN’s Free At Noon series. As is their custom, the good folks at WXPN have taken the recording of that show and turned it into a segment for their popular syndicated World Cafe program. The show airs today at 2:00PM EST, and can be enjoyed at the WXPN website, or on your local NPR affiliate as seen on World Cafe’s website, or listen to the audio stream on NPR’s site when it’s posted later today. If you live in Philadelphia, it’s a little less complicated: just tune in at 88.5FM.

P.S. Have you purchased Yo La Tengo’s majestic new album, Fade, yet? You really should.

Not The Crossover We Were Counting On : The American Conservative’s Love Letter To Yo La Tengo

By Gerard on Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

They have a record called I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass, which is sure to appeal to the hyper-aggressive Breitbart wing of conservatism.

To paraphrase Michael Jordan, “tradcons buy records, too”.

Or the other way around. Whichever you prefer. Remember #rocknfowl And be sure to pick up a copy of the absolutely stunning new Yo La Tengo album Fade while you’re in the house.

Yo La Tengo takes Seattle, performs live on KEXP and at Easy Street

By Hector on Friday, January 18th, 2013

ylt

Fade release week rolls on as Yo La Tengo, fresh from yesterday’s triumphant (and packed) Amoeba in-store in LA, hits the Pacific Northwest in suitably grand style. If you’re savvy enough to own either a radio OR a computer, you can check out an exclusive live set from Georgia, Ira and James on Seattle’s KEXP, after which Ira will be sticking around to guest DJ with host Kevin Cole. It all goes down starting at 6pm EST/3pm PST at 90.3FM and KEXP.org.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE. If you find yourself in Seattle today, it would behoove you to make your way to the soon-to-shutter Queen Anne location of Easy Street Records, which Yo La Tengo will be sending off with the store’s final in- store performance ever at 7pm. This is sure to be a rip-roaring farewell so don’t be the one to have to tell your grandkids you missed it because I promise they will never forgive you.
