Soon, a new Yo La Tengo album and tour! I still love this band so much and hope to be in the right place at the right time for their tour. The album’s called I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass. Matador has made the first single available, “Pass the Hatchet” — a really nice mix of all eras of Yo La… not super soft, a little dark, not silky, nicely groovy. Yo La Tengo: yay!
