Yo Lo Tengo on La Blogotheque’s Take Away Show

One of my all time favorite bands Yo La Tengo recently did a Take Away Show for La Blogotheque, one of the best projects on the web. Walking around in Montmarte one afternoon they performed four songs, With A Girl Like You, which is a Troggs cover, Our Way To Fall, Sugarcube and Periodically Double or Triple, a song off of their new album Popular Songs. It really shows how little YLT needs to make these songs so beautiful. My favorite song of the bunch is Sugarcube, which is probably by far the best song they’ve ever written. I also love hearing Georgia go nuts with her drumsticks on a rug and a metal cart… lady drummers are the best.
