The Inventive Sounds Of Yo La Tengo

Published: 2004-04-22
New Jersey band Yo La Tengo is planning on heading northwards just once during their short North American tour. The band will make an appearance at Richard's on Richard's in Vancouver on May 24th.

Yo La Tengo first appeared on the music scene in 1986 with 'Ride The Tiger', and then proceeded to become one of the most interesting and innovative bands the United States has produced. Definitely one of the more artistic groups in recent years, Yo La Tengo has released an album comprised completely of instrumental tracks they recorded specifically for the soundtracks of French avant-garde filmmaker Jean Painleve's undersea documentaries. The 78 minute record is titled 'The Sounds Of The Sounds Of Science' (and no that is not a typo).

Yo La Tengo's most recent album proper 'Summer Sun' was released early last year. The record failed to meet the exceptionally warm praises of 'And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out', the album the band released three years prior. However 'Summer Sun' was by no means received badly by fans or critics. Yo La Tengo is destined to be adored by indie kids and rock snobs for many years to come.
