Jamie Lidell will release a self titled album on February 19 via Warp. Check out the awesome lead single, "What A Shame," below.
Yo La Tengo have some visual accompaniment for "Before We Run," the first single off their upcoming album, Fade. Check it out below.
As mentioned, Yo La Tengo will be releasing a new album in 2013 and they just revealed the details for it. It's called Fade and it will be out on January 15 in the US and a day earlier int he UK via Matador. That's the cover art above and the tracklist is below. There will also be a deluxe LP that comes with a bonus 7" with covers of Todd Rundgren's "I Saw the Light" and Times New Viking's "Move to California. And the deluxe edition also comes with an MP3 download of "an additional 11-minute bonus track, untitled as of this writing".
Like they do almost every year, YLT will play all eight nights of Hanukkah in Hoboken at Maxwell's from December 8 - 15. All eight of those shows are sold out, but the band will kick off an international tour in 2013 in support of the new record which includes another NYC area show on February 16 at Town Hall. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, November 30 at 11 AM.
A list of all dates and the Fade tracklist are below...
Meanwhile, the band are putting the finishing touches on their 13th, still-untitled new album which was recorded in Chicago with producer John McEntire. Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley talked about making it recently with Pitchfork:
IK: We've known John a long time. We were crammed in a van with him in 1992-- he was with Seam before the Sea & Cake and Tortoise. I think the Sea & Cake's first show might have been with us. We've made music with him a lot because, when we have done shows together, he would play with us.Yo La Tengo released a limited-edition single, "Stupid Things," last month which serves as a first listen for the new album which will be out sometime in 2013 and you can stream that below.
Every time we made a record with Roger we always considered not making a record with him. We always thought about it, then decided to work with him. But when the idea of John came up, it felt right. A lot of our ideas don't get examined that deeply past the field test.
Pitchfork: Is there a particular way he approaches sound that drew you to him?
GH: We knew that we would have a lot of amazing gear in the studio. He's a musician-- that helps. I felt that there would be a real gravity and like-mindedness, like it wouldn't be so difficult to get at the things we wanted to do musically.

M. Ward/Yo La Tengo at Prospect Park - 8/7/12
M. Ward has been touring internationally all year in support of his new album, A Wasteland Companion, and after having played Webster Hall back in May, he made his way back to NYC on Tuesday (8/7) for a Celebrate Brooklyn show at Prospect Park with Yo La Tengo (who were without bassist James McNew due to medical reasons) and comedian Wyatt Cenac. M. Ward mixed his 21-song set up pretty evenly between material off of his four most recent albums, and threw in a handful of covers as well, including dedicating his first of two encores to all Daniel Johnston covers.
M. Ward was a paid show, but the free Celebrate Brooklyn shows in Prospect Park, which included Wild Flag, Mission of Burma, and Ted Leo last week (8/3), continue with Little Dragon and Frankie Rose on Friday (8/10).
You can catch Wyatt Cenac in NYC again when he plays Carolines on October 11 - 13. Tickets for those shows are available.
More pictures from the show and M. Ward's setlist are below.

[M. Ward] did not disappoint on Friday. While playing pretty much straight through for almost an hour-and-a-half, he included songs from all of his albums. There was also very little chit-chat, lots of guitar work, and an ever-changing backdrop provided by four windows... The band played some great ones like Poison Cup, Rollercoaster, To Go Home and Never Had Nobody Like You. Also included was one of his guitar solo songs, which is always nice to watch. -[Second Doubles]M Ward roped in Monsters of Folk collaborator Conor Oberst (who just announced a Carnegie Hall show) during his appearance at Webster Hall on Friday (5/11) to play "Vincent O'Brien", his second encore of the evening. A video of the two musicians performing that song is below. The show, which featured an appearance from the Lee Ranaldo Band as part of a string of dates that they're on together, was the kick-off to an East Coast tour and one of two appearances in NYC that day (he also performed at Late Night with David Letterman which aired that night). Pictures and the setlist from Webster Hall as well as a video from Letterman are in this post.
If you missed Letterman, Webster Hall, or the release of A Wasteland Companion then you're still in luck. Stream the new LP in full at M. Ward's site, and look for the guitar great to play Brooklyn at Prospect Park on August 7th with Yo La Tengo. Tickets are still available. M Ward also has a streamable performance from WNYC available as well.
More pics and setlist from Webster Hall and those videos are below...
Charlie Horse (aka Yo La Tengo) @ Le Poisson Rouge last night (via)
Charlie Horse opens for Lambchop tonight at Le Poisson Rouge. The show is sold out, but tickets are still available for Lambchop's Brooklyn show Friday at the Bell House (which has no opener). All dates HERE.
UPDATE: It was in fact Yo La Tengo!
Built to Spill at BV SXSW 2012 (more by Ryan Barkan)
The Hopscotch festival in Raleigh, North Carolina will celebrate its third year from Sept. 6-8, 2012 in downtown Raleigh, with 175 bands in 15 venues. The initial lineup, released today, runs the gamut from traditional indie favorites to punk to noise music to hip hop to noisy black metal and all stops in between, featuring performances from Built to Spill, sunn 0))), The Roots, The Jesus & Mary Chain (who played SXSW), Liars (who have a show coming up at Webster Hall), Baroness, Deerhoof, Death Grips (who play NYC soon and have new material on the way), Danny Brown (who was at Coachella and plays Prospect Park soon), Pallbearer (who play an exclusive East Coast Show soon), Screaming Females (who recently played NYC and are on tour now), Thee Oh Sees, The Spits (who just played NYC twice), Tenement, The Mountain Goats (two sets, one of which will be an all metal-covers set!) and so many more.
(and now we know the Jesus & Mary Chain are coming back soon)
Tickets are on sale. The full lineup and flyer (update: and a few more announced J&MC dates) are below...
M. Ward at Newport Folk Fest 2011 (more by Jim Brueckner)
As mentioned, M. Ward is set to kick off a tour with Lee Ranaldo in May which comes to NYC for a sold out show at Webster Hall on May 11. If you weren't able to get tickets to that show, he'll be back in NYC for a much larger show at Prospect Park on August 7, one of the ticketed Celebrate Brooklyn shows. Lee Ranaldo won't open this one (neither will fIREHOSE), but keeping the trend of having clasic 80s/90s indie rock bands on the bill, Yo La Tengo will. Tickets go on sale Friday (4/20) at noon.
Meanwhile, M. Ward, like fIREHOSE, played Coachella this past weekend and will again next week. Check out a video from his performance below.
He also released his new album, A Wasteland Companion, earlier this month via Merge. You can stream the entire thing below.
Updated dates, video, and album stream below...
So it wasn't exactly the Feelies, but Yo La Tengo did manage to arrange for an opening set by The Trypes on the eighth night of Hanukkah at Maxwell's...
After Crazy Rhythms, Fier and Keith DeNunzio left the band. With the Feelies in limbo, Mercer and Million collaborated with other local New Jersey musicians, forming one of a number of Feelies offshoots, The Trypes, featuring some once and future Feelies members, including Brenda Sauter, Dave Weckerman and Stanley Demeski, as well as John Baumgartner, Marc Francia and Toni Paruta. The Trypes, quieter and more psychedelic than the Feelies, played regular live gigs around the New York/Hoboken scene at clubs such as Maxwell's and Folk City. In 1984, Coyote released a Trypes 12" EP produced by Million and Mercer, The Explorers Hold, featuring three original songs (credited to Mercer alone or with other band members), plus a cover of the George Harrison song, "Love You To", which originally had appeared on The Beatles' Revolver. The Trypes also contributed a Million/Mercer-produced original song, "A Plan Revised", to the 1985 Coyote anthology of Hoboken acts, Luxury Condos Coming To Your Neighborhood Soon. Some members of the Trypes later formed the band Speed The Plough. [Wikipedia[Comedian Chris Elliot (!) is also opening the Tuesday night Yo La Tengo show that is still underway as I write this.
It's got to be kind of hard to find someone to open for you on Christmas. Maybe that's what led to Dump, the other project of Yo La Tengo's James McNew, opening for Yo La Tengo at Maxwell's on Sunday, December 25th (Hanukkah, night 6). Maybe Dump's recent show at Spike Hill was scheduled as a warm-up.
Yo La Tengo is keeping a diary. Their friend Kelly Reichardt writes:
Dump is on the stage. I know, I know, this reporter is asking herself the same question. How in the world did Yo La Tengo get Dump to play their Christmas night show? I guess everybody in this business has connections. In any case, it's our good fortune and listening from my perch I forget all about my duties and just let myself get lost in the music (not in any kind of freaky arm-waving way, but just in a quiet-inside way). I'm in my zone. Enjoying myself along with everyone else in the room. It's somewhere in the middle of the Prince cover tune, "Another Lonely Christmas" that the older, more disgruntled looking red-shirt-wearing door guy makes a beeline over to me. He's shouting something I can't make out, but I can clearly read his lips as he keeps repeating YOU SURE LOOK GOOD TONIGHT KELLY! I finally lean closer and take out the earplugs and it turns out what he is actually yelling in my face is YOU CAN'T STAND ON THAT STOOL!Comedian Kurt Braunhohler, who will return to the Hoboken venue to open for Ted Leo, also opened the Christmas show. Tara Key and Rachel Blumberg were the other special guests that night. Full setlist HERE.
Last night, night 7, Kurt Vile & the Violators and Leo Allen opened. Dave Schramm played guitar with Yo La Tengo, and Peter Stampfel also joined the band. Full setlist HERE.
Tonight, 12/27, is the final night of Hanukkah 2011. Who do you think the openers will be? I bet James McNew (not to mention the rest of Yo La Tengo) would be excited if it were the Feelies.

Yo La Tengo Hanukkah @ Maxwell's 12/22/2011 (via TheRealYLT)
The Lee Ranaldo Band and comedian Ted Alexandro opened the third night of Hanukkah for Yo La Tengo at Maxwell's. Lee, Steve Shelley, and Alan Licht, who is also in Lee's band, joined Yo La Tengo for a number of songs in the latter half of their set, including a cover of Sonic Youth's "Mote," which Lee sings lead on. In the encore, Yo La Tengo covered John Cale's "Andalucia" and Barry Manilow's "Mandy," the latter of which they were joined by John Cameron Mitchell on vocals. Check out the full setlist via Frank & Earthy below.
Speaking of Lee Ranaldo, he's working on his solo album called Between The Times & The Tides, which will be out March 20 via Matador. As mentioned, his live band includes Alan Licht, Irwin Menken, and SY bandmate Steve Shelley. All three members contribute to the album in addition to Sonic Youth collaborator Jim O'Rourke, Nels Cline, John Medeski, Bob Bert (who drummed in SY before Steve Shelley joined, and was also in Pussy Galore who are rumored to be opening one of the YLT shows), Lee's wife and longtime collaborator Leah Singer, and Kathy Leisen. The album was produced by Lee Ranaldo and John Agnello, who produced Sonic Youth's most recent album, The Eternal. According to Sonic Youth's site, he is planning a 2012 tour. Lee spoke to Rolling Stone about the new album:
It's eight songs with a full band and two songs with pretty much acoustic guitar only. I've always been an acoustic guitar player and I've pretty much continued to play acoustic guitar throughout all of the Sonic Youth periods. My material for Sonic Youth often started on acoustic guitar. What was refreshing about this was just to see all these songs sprout and actually kind of follow each other down this road and actually get completed. I've got millions of tapes of half-completed songs and for some reason, at this point, I had the energy to take them all the way through to the end.And about the future of Sonic Youth:
I'm feeling optimistic about the future no matter what happens at this point. I mean, every band runs its course. We've been together way longer than any of us ever imagined would happen and it's been for the most part an incredibly pleasurable ride. There's still a lot of stuff we're going to continue to do. There's tons and tons of archival projects and things like that that are still going on, so there are so many ways in which we are tied to each other for the future both musically and in other ways. I'm just happy right now to let the future take its course and I guess I'm kind of thankful that I've got this other project that kind of came about on its own. It wasn't kind of like, well, "Oh the band is ending for a while and I've got to figure out what to do." It kind of naturally happened in the course of things so that was a nice way for that to come about. I played my first show the day after Kim and Thurston announced [their separation.] That was completely weird.A picture of Lee Ranaldo Band from the Yo La Tengo show and setlists below...
Yo La Tengo Hanukkah @ Maxwell's 12/21/2011 (via TheRealYLT)
Looks like Mac McCaughan (of Superchunk, Portastatic and Merge Records) had more than one reason (so far) for spending Hanukkah in Hoboken with Yo La Tengo again this year. His old friends Spent, who reunited in 2009 for Merge's 20th Anniversary, were the openers for Yo La Tengo on Wednesday (the second night of Hanukkah), along with comedians Bobcat Goldthwait (!) and Neil Innes (!). Smokey Hormel is guest YLT guitarist.
The Sea and Cake opened the first night. A picture of Spent on stage at Maxwell's below...

As previously mentioned, The Sea & Cake, Mac McCaughan, Jon Benjamin & Jon Glaser stopped by at Maxwell's last night for Yo La Tengo's first of eight Hanukkah shows at Maxwell's. Who will be there tonight? UPDATE: It was Spent
Here are some pictures from the first show. They continue below...
Yo La Tengo Hanukkah 2011 Night 1 (photo by Jack2point0)
Yo La Tengo played their first of eight Hanukkah shows at Maxwell's last night (12/20). We have a full set of pictures coming, but in the meantime, check out last night's setlist complete with openers/guests listed, via Frank & Earthy, below...
Matador label-mates James McNew of Yo La Tengo and Ted Leo both have December 2011 Maxwell's shows coming up and both contributed 'Best of 2011' lists to Matador Records for the label's annual big list of lists. Maybe their lists contain some clues on what special guests we can expect at their upcoming NJ shows (Yo La Tengo on all nights of Hanukkah, Ted Leo on New Year's Eve). At a minimum, Ted's list contains a great recommendation for vegan pizza in Brooklyn. Both lists are reprinted below...
Yo La Tengo @ Maxwell's, Hanukkah 2007 (more)
Yo La Tengo, despite a scary health scare for Ira, will begin their eight nights of Hanukkah shows tonight at Maxwell's. Part of the fun is of course figuring/finding out who opens each show, and who the special guests and comedians are/will be. Any ideas?
Any other guesses? Who's definitely in from out of town? Marianne Faithfull? Dum Dum Girls? Who lives here or close to here that seems like maybe they could stop by? Titus Andronicus? Ted Leo? Kurt Vile? Thurston Moore? These are all just guesses... stay tuned for more as the week goes on.
Ira @ Maxwell's for Hanukkah 2008 (more by Natasha Ryan)
Ira posted the following to Yo La Tengo's website on Saturday:
Hi everybody, especially those of you with tickets to next week's shows,Glad to hear Ira is doing ok, and here's to another great Hanukkah!
We strive to make our Hanukkah shows unpredictable, and in one unfortunate regard we've outdone ourselves this year. I'm going to be a little vague here, but I had a pretty serious health scare earlier this month. I'm well on the way to recovery, but I've not yet been deemed ready to Rock. The good news is . . . well, the good news is I'm on the way to recovery . . . but vis-à-vis next week, the good news is that I've been deemed ready to sit in a chair and play the concerts that mean more to me, Georgia and James than most anything else we do together. Our sets will undoubtedly be tweaked accordingly. In other words, if you were hoping to be in attendance for our annual airing of "Mushroom Cloud of Hiss," I'm afraid that is now zooming up the Unlikely chart with a bullet. But we're confident that it's going to be a great eight days. We're looking forward to seeing you all, and to not answering any questions about what happened to me!
As long as I've got your attention, I'll let you know about one other change this year. We've filled the walls of Maxwell's front room with a bunch of posters and other ephemera from our various closets. Some of it will be for sale (all proceeds to charity) and all of it will hopefully be entertaining.
Hanukkahly yours, Ira
James McNew in Philly in Sept (more by David Andrako)
Dump, aka the other project of Yo La Tengo's James McNew, is playing a show at Spike Hill in Brooklyn tonight (12/11) with The Medium Necks and Asuna. Tickets are still available (and probably will be at the door).
Spike Hill, the Williamsburg bar and music venue conveniently located on Bedford right near the L, has also announced that O'Death will be playing there on New Year's Eve. Tickets are on sale.
Is anything still going on at Zuccotti Park? Regardless, Jackson Browne and Dawes, who have collaborated before (just ask Lefsetz!), will perform for Occupy Wall Street at Zuccotti Park today (12/1) sometime between noon and 1:30pm (I've seen it listed as 12, 12:30 and 1). Oh and Third Eye Blind, who wrote a song for the movement, will be there too! How's it going to be? How's it going to be...
Later tonight the movement will be at Lincoln Center with Philip Glass.
Dawes begin a run of proper NY and NJ shows on 12/3.

Tandoori Knights @ the Bell House
I started the night, the fourth and final night of the the Norton Records 25th Anniversary celebration at the Bell House, watching Andy Shernoff from the Dictators playing an acoustic set in the front room. He ended with his hilarious zombie Jew song, based on Jesus's return to Earth.
The Figures of Light, who originally formed in 1970, played their classic proto-punk songs as well as tracks off their new album, Drop Dead, which was recorded this July in Brooklyn by the Gories' Mick Collins, who plays guitar in the band along with original members Wheeler Winston Dixon and Michael Downey, as well as Mark Natale and Miriam Linna from the A-Bones.
The Real Kids had to cancel due to illness, so another New Jersey band, the Swinging Neckbreakers filled in for them.
After them came the A-Bones, who feature vocalist Billy Miller and his wife, drummer Miriam Linna from Norton Records. They were joined at the end of their set Cyril Jordan and Roy Loney of the Flaming Groovies, who also played with the Daddy Long Legs the night before, and who played 'Teenage Head,' which was inspired by Kim Fowley when he was recording their record. Yo La Tengo's Ira Kaplan, who played the celebration on Friday night as part of the Condo Fucks, was also playing guitar in the A-Bones. as he often does.
Tandoori Knights, a take-off on the British show Tandoori Nights were next. They are fronted by King Khan and Bloodshot Bill, and the band is a slightly slower, more melodic sound than the two are known for in their other projects, but they still kept the crowd moving until after 1 am, when Norton founders Billy and Miriam came out to thank everyone who had made the sold-out four day event such a success. Billy, Miriam, and King Khan also all made late night appearances on the first night of the fest.
The Sonics @ The Bell House
After they finished the thank-you's at nearly 1:45, the band everyone was waiting to see, The Sonics, took the stage. They had headlined a show Saturday afternoon at Maxwell's too. I didn't see that, but Sunday night they took the Bell House stage and just completely laid it down. I was really impressed. They played an hour and a half set that just kept picking up energy the entire time, hitting all their well-knows songs, like Strychnine, the Hustler, Boss Hoss, Psycho and climaxed with their first and best-known hit, the Witch, and tore right into a cover of Louie Louie they totally owned, probably playing it better and with more authority than any other band in the world is capable of doing. The biggest surprise to me was how good their new songs are. Usually a band reforms knowing that they have a catalogue that people celebrate and will pay to hear, and they can tour on that nostalgia factor, or write some songs that completely lack the chemistry that the original members once had. I've definitely groaned when a reunion band announces, "we're gonna play some of our new songs tonight." but the Sonics have hit the studio hard. The new songs, Cheap Shades, Bad Attitude, Don't Back Down, and Vampire Kiss were really tight, and would sound right at home on both Here Are the Sonics and BOOM. Their new record, 8, was recorded by legendary Seattle producer Jack Endino and was released in 2010. It's great to see such an important band still touring and recording great songs......

Great Gaylord @ the Bell House
After a raucous, sold-out first night of Norton's 25th Anniversary celebration at the Bell House, the party continued at the Brooklyn venue on Friday (11/11) where once again the night was opened by The Nor-Tones ("Norton's all-employee band includes members of the Little Killers, Daddy Long Legs, Stalkers, Girls At Dawn and LiveFastDie playing the hits of the Norton catalog.")
Night two also featured a set by mysterious cover band the Condo Fucks (aka Yo La Tengo) with Great Gaylord ("the Greatest Lousy Singer of all time"?). For the Condo Fucks it was their second NYC show in a short amount of time, though their first one at Mercury Lounge was sans Gaylord. Yo La Tengo will play eight more sold out shows over Hanukkah at Maxwell's (where Sunday's Norton show headliner The Sonics played on Saturday).
Also on the Friday night bill, some of which fell under the "R&B/Soul revue" umbrella, was Jackie and the Cedrics, a new lineup of Greg Cartwright's band Reigning Sound (featuring members of The Jay Vons), Mark Sultan (aka BBQ whose old partner King Khan played the night before), Lonnie Youngblood and the Bloodhounds with special guest Mick Collins (of the Gories and the Dirtbombs) on guitar, The Mighty Hannibal, Andre Williams (who also stopped by the night before), and Happy Organ man Dave "Baby" Cortez on keys.

The Glands @ Mercury Lounge - 11/4/2011
The Glands are on a reunion tour that hits Maxwell's in Hoboken tonight (11/5). Last night it was Mercury Lounge in NYC where the Condo Fucks (aka Yo La Tengo playing covers) opened the show. According to Ahmad Bilal, "That Condo Fucks (@TheRealYLT) set was SO fucking visceral, fun & insanely tight. So glad @NYCtaper is recording. Georgia is incredible!". Stay tuned for that. Meanwhile here are some pictures and couple of videos of the headliner. It all continues below...
