Yo La Tengo In Concert (All Songs Considered, 9/17/09, NPR)

When Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley first formed Yo La Tengo in 1984, neither could have predicted that the humble band from Hoboken, N.J., would still be making vital music a quarter-century later. But with the release of Popular Songs earlier this month, Yo La Tengo shows that it still has something to say, mostly in the form of dissonant rock and sweetly atmospheric, glittery pop. The group played songs from the new album, along with older favorites, in this full concert, originally webcast live on NPR Music Thursday, Sept. 17. The performance was recorded live from Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club.
