Published Mar 15, 2018Ahead of kicking off a North American tour later this month, Yo La Tengo have delivered their new LP There's a Riot Going On, and you can hear the entire thing right now.
Arriving today through Matador, There's a Riot Going On marks the band's first full-length LP since 2013's Fade. Fifteen tracks in length, the album was produced by bassist James McNew, who constructed the songs through piecing together bits of unused film scores and spontaneous recordings from the group.
The album, which references Sly and the Family Stone's 1971 LP of a similar name, is said to be "an expression of freedom and sanity and emotional expansion, a declaration of common humanity as liberating as it is soft-spoken."
