Yo La Tengo is the band that keeps on giving. Since forming in the early 80s, Ira Kaplan (guitars, piano, vocals), Georgia Hubley (drums, piano, vocals), and James McNew (bass, vocals) have done pretty much everything a band can do and then some: Record amazing music (I suggest Electr-O-Pura, I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One, and And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out as introduction), cover amazing music (Fakebook, Yo La Tengo Is Murdering the Classics), compose amazing music for movies (The Sounds of the Sounds of Science, Junebug, Game 6, Shortbus, Old Joy), create amazing side projects (Dump, Condo Fucks), and, of course, perform...amazingly.
