With the release of their new album, There’s a riot going on, imminent, NJ trio Yo La Tengo have released a new track from the album, For you too. It’s brooding and hypnotic, this effect laden guitar line buzzing away in the background while Ira Kaplan sings quiet words of assurance: “For you / whenever there’s hurt / and things are uncertain / Maybe I could be that guy / I’d like to try.” There’s something in the melancholy that makes you yearn for it, something that Yo La Tengo have become something of an unrivalled expert at.
