Yo La Tengo

NPR's Rick Karr visits with Georgia Hubley and Ira Kaplan, two members of the New Jersey-based rock band, Yo La Tengo. In a time when the definition of "independent rock" has lost much of its meaning, this Hoboken trio can still be called independent. On their latest CD "AND THEN NOTHING TURNED ITSELF INSIDE-OUT" the band continues their extensive use of guitar feedback-laced instrumentals combined with quieter, more contemplative songs — a combination that has won the band favor among both music critics and fans.
