Yo La Tengo Part 2: 2000 - 2018

It's a long one, so buckle up

Nick and Ewan are joined again by Ben Zimmer, Jesse Jarnow, and Jeffrey Lewis to talk through the work of Yo La Tengo this century.

We get side-tracked a little by Ewan getting excited about Slade.

As you know Ben is a renowned linguist and lexicographer, and big Yo La Tengo fan.

Jeffrey is, quite simply, a phenomenal musician, singer, songwriter, and comic book artist; he is also a massive Yo La Tengo fan.

Jesse? Well Jesse literally wrote the book on Yo La Tengo: Big Day Coming: Yo La Tengo and the rise of Indie Rock.

Join us for an in depth look at the second half of the career of Yo La Tengo, and see if the band re-find that loud sound from their early years.

About the Podcast

Temporary Fandoms
Temporary Fandoms: The music immersion podcast
Temp Fans is a podcast that explores the complete studio discography of legacy, popular, or downright obscure artists. We started out as a Facebook group where we listen to an album a day by a chosen artist, from start to finish, even the bad bits. And that's what this podcast is.

Join us as we dive through the good, the bad and the what? Take your time and listen along. Feel free to pause us and go listen on Spotify or wherever to the albums. Or go to our Spotify playlist where you will find the pod spliced up and inserted into a curated playlist of selected tracks.

To date Nick and Ewan have been joined by an ever growing roster of guests, who all have one thing in common; they want the chance to talk about artists that inspire passion in them. That's not to say this is a gushfest, there are plenty of dissenting opinions on the way.
