Did You Catch Yo La Tengo On Jimmy Fallon?

Yo La Tengo

Indie rock royalty Yo La Tengo stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night studios earlier this month to perform the bright “Ohm” from their latest release, Fade.   Check out their vibrant performance featuring Portlandia‘s Fred Armisen on drums here.

Paste magazine remarked that the album “is just 10 distinctive, beautiful songs in 45 minutes meant to show their languid new peers (Real Estate, Beach House, Grizzly Bear, what have you) who’s boss. It shouldn’t work. It’s to that roaring 20-year streak’s goodwill that it does.”   Rolling Stone similarly raved, “The band revels in its pop modesty, as beautifully as ever.”

Yo La Tengo will return to Madison’s Barrymore Theater next Tuesday (February 5) to perform two sets for their loyal fans.  Get your tickets here.
