Yo La Tengo share hypnotic new track to Bandcamp
Yo La Tengo joined Bandcamp this week and have been uploading a new track, recorded during free-form jam sessions at their rehearsal space, every day this week. "Most of the songs we’ve written in the last 25 years have begun that way," the band wrote, "but often we do it for no other reason than to push away the outside world." While the first three tracks YLT uploaded were on the drony/ambient side, today's has a little more form. "Georgia considers the two blue ones (Thursday)" is still droney, but it throbs along in a hypnotic Velvet Underground way, with James McNew's pulsating bass and Georgia Hubley's pounding beat. There are some vocals in there too. Maybe this one's a keeper? Listen below.
