Yo La Tengo

Inspired By Their Classic Fakebook Yo La Tengo Release New Album Stuff Like That There

Back in 1990 Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley made a Yo La Tengo album called Fakebook. It was filled with gorgeous acoustic covers and versions of their older songs. It became one of the band’s most beloved releases. The Hoboken indie-rock band, that added bassist James McNew as a full time member in 1994, have now made a similar album called Stuff Like That There. It’s the same idea plus some new YLT songs. Lucky us we get to listen to a recent concert with Yo La Tengo at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia and talk with the trio about making new album. Also up for discussion: their recent gig getting up early to provide the music for NPR’s Morning Edition.
