Yo La Tengo "Ohm"

There are some great artists who were close, but never quite fit mvyradio's sound or sensibility.

But then, as time went on, with the maturing sound of the band, and the evolving sound of the station, the band fit.

We didn't play early Decemberists records, but eventually the band softened a bit and the station started to sound more contemporary, so we added them.

We didn't play early Ben Folds.  But as he toned down the rocking/punky aspects of his music, and lyrically became more mature, we added him.

I've always thought Yo La Tengo could make a record that would work for mvyradio, but that they their style and ours hadn't quite crossed paths yet.

They've got a new song out, so it's a good time to check in with them.

I'm not to sure this is the meeting of sounds I'd been waiting for, but what do you think?

Hear the song on Youtube.
