“Let’s put it out before the flames go higher”

Yo La Tengo – “We’re An American Band” from I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One (1997)

Another song that calms and soothes. This one works on what you might call the solar principle: concentrate enough face-melting atom-powered guitar work into one dense mass, and wind up with something warm and reassuring.

By the way, both Yo La Tengo concerts I’ve attended have been incredible, and I highly recommend hearing them live if you ever have the chance.

Do you have it?

    i agree and have said before that yo la tengo is the best rock show i’ve seen. especially the sounds of science, those films are very good in their own right. one of the few modern groups i really dig.
