Zen and the Art of Guitar Feedback: A Quarter Century of Yo La Tengonew

Yo La Tengo's artistic philosophy becomes clearer in Ira Kaplan's Zen-like calm. During our conversation he is relaxed, measured, and thoughtful, and appears almost wholly uninterested in the theoretical -- and the business surrounding the band.

On Album 12, Yo La Tengo Again Turns Familiar Music Inside Outnew

Old's Cool

This is exactly the kind of disc that should come from a smart, veteran band that loves hacking up a solid-gold tune, has played with everyone from Ray Davies to the Sun Ra Arkestra, and has found more and more work lately scoring films.
