Vinyl LP pressing. 2015 release from the alt-rock veterans. Rare is the band that can cover themselves. Rarer is the band that would even think of it and rarer still is a band that would return to the conception and re-imagine its first breakthrough record. Someone may have read recently that old quote about how “in not knowing history one is doomed to repeat it.” There’s not another band that I know that is less doomed than Yo La Tengo. As stated previously, the album features covers from bands other than themselves: The Cure, Hank Williams, The Lovin’ Spoonful and more. Stuff Like That There, a 14 song collection of covers, originals and reworking(s) happens to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Yo La Tengo’s landmark 1990 album, Fakebook. Recorded with Gene Holder (The Feelies), Stuff Like That There as the trio of Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley and James McNew augmented by the guitarist and former Yo La Tengo member Dave Schramm, with James negotiating the wonders of the upright bass for the first time. This specific fearsome foursome — playing material from Stuff Like That There and maybe, possibly/probably (we really don’t dictate repertoire around here) ‘Fakebook’ will kick off a world tour on September. This album has be dreamed about by Yo La Tengo fans for decades and the wait is nearly over.
