New Jersey’s Yo La Tengo have provided us with over thirty years of tireless releases that have survived the test of time. With their latest album There’s a Riot Going On entering the world this coming month on March 16th the band have teased us with lead single For You Too. 

An almost hypnotic guitar line paired with a friendly, almost familiar, drum beat the track becomes easy listening at it’s finest.Ira Kaplan’s ear wormy vocals provide a further more soothing layer in this hectic story, sitting across the room from the fuzzy baseline that underpins the song they come together in perfect harmony.

The group has constantly bombarded our ears with content since their inception, and we love them for that. There’s a Riot Going On will be the band’s 26th studio album and reflects on the currently climate of which we live – the title says it all really. You can pre-order the album here.
