Yo La Tengo - Shaker

This is one of those bands that's full of surprises. They can bounce back and forth from guitar driven noise to poppy-dreamy sounding stuff with ease, so you're never  quite sure which version you're going to get from them.  Luckily, you get both on this single.

"Shaker" is the guitar song, while "For Shame Of Doing Wrong" the mellower track. "For Shame..." is a Richard Thompson cover. YLT adds their own sense of moodiness to it.

A: Shaker
B: For Shame Of Doing Wrong

  1. Much thanks for this rip. The CD version of 'For Shame...' (totally different recording, as per the official discography) is much inferior to this vinyl one which I don't get around to playing enough.
