Yo La Tengo’s latest LP, This Stupid World, is another in a long line of masterpieces — this is a band that’s been so good for so long that it’s easy to take them for granted. But let’s not do that. As a little celebration of YLT, we’ve put together a mix of deep cuts stretching from the late 1980s to somewhere close to the present day. They’ve got a lot of this kind of thing. There are b-sides, bonus tracks, covers, instrumentals, guest appearances, remixes, live cuts, film scores … even the rejected jingle for a Coke commercial. A grab-bag of styles, not unlike some of the band’s albums, but it all hangs together wonderfully. Spend some time in this little corner of the world … | t wilcox
