Yo La Tengo- Murdering Even More Classics 2018

Sorry for the lack of posts in 2018. I've been caught up in my local NHL team's playoff run that just ended on Sunday afternoon. Really, the Jets aren't the real excuse since I follow the NHL playoffs regardless of what teams are in, but I pay special attention to (my favourite team) the Blackhawks and of course, the Jets. I've been busy! Work, eat, watch hockey, sleep...repeat. This has been going on pretty much everyday since April 11th, so you get the picture.

Just like the playoffs, a springtime tradition wouldn't be complete without the annual WFMU-FM's Request-a-Thon featuring the always amazing, Yo La Tengo. This year's radio event aired March 10th with Yo La Tengo fulfilling the requests of listeners that pledged money to hear the band bravely work their magic with their near perfect renditions of the hits as they remembered them. Actually, they sound pretty tight this year and yup, I think they're getting better each year! Though I don't live anywhere near the New Jersey area code, I look forward to hearing this set and it's definitely a highlight of my busy, unexciting life. Enough talk, there's lots of music to get to.
