The Music - Yo La Tengo play "Here to Fall" on a rooftop






Hoboken's finest - the mighty, Yo La Tengo - do a great live version here of  the classic "Here to Fall",.

Ironically enough, they perform "Here to Fall" on a rooftop!

YLT are set to release the LP Stuff Like That There - a sequel of sorts to their 1990 album Fakebook which featured covers and re-workings of older songs. 

Fresh off celebrating their 30th anniversary as one of the most beloved and adventurous bands in rock history, Yo La Tengo release Stuff Like That There on August 28th via Matador Records.


And this platter just goes to prove once again that nobody can create adapt/ improve songs as well as YLT! They're so good that they even re-interpret their own songs brilliantly!








The album features re-recorded versions of some of their old songs as well as a diverse array of covers of tracks by the Cure, Hank Williams, the Parliaments, Sun Ra, the Lovin' Spoonful, Darlene McCrea, and others. Included too is a cover of "Automatic Doom", by Special Pillow (the 1990s Hoboken band that featured Yo La Tengo's James McNew.)
