Yo La Tengo Support Popular Songs with Inevitably Popular Tour

Yo La Tengo are pretty presumptuous. Their new album, out September 8 on Matador, is called Popular Songs, but what if it just isn’t? What if every song on the album is universally panned? Granted, it probably won’t be. Yo La Tengo are running on a good 20 years of critical acclaim, so I guess they have reason to be confident.

Another thing Yo La Tengo can be confident about: their upcoming fall tour. Even if nobody likes Popular Songs, there are certainly enough people out there who would want to see Ira, Georgia, and James run through “Cherry Chapstick” and “Sugarcube.” And plenty of people will get the chance to see just that, both in North America throughout September and October and across Europe in November. Go on, see them in multiple countries. It should be a great time for the most popular kids in indie rock school.
