Yo La Tengo are a few weeks out from the March 16th release of their fifteenth studio album There's A Riot Going On. Despite their longevity, YLT are still finding new ways to push themselves and experiment, and for this album the trio for the first time completely wrote and recorded the album entirely in their studio with extremely minimal outside input. The result is some of their most carefully composed and self-examining music to date.

Following the release of 4 new tracks back in January, today they are releasing 'For You Too', a perfect example of the heart and focus in There's A Riot Going On. The juicy and fuzzy bass marks the territory around which Ira Kaplan playfully flits his guitar, creating an intimate low-lit scene. You can imagine Kaplan singing eyes closed, as he gets personal and barely above a whisper intones: “For you / whenever there’s hurt / and things are uncertain / Maybe I could be that guy / I’d like to try.” The song ultimately soars into a beautifully lifting climax of inner strength and dedication, proving that, in many ways, Yo La Tengo are still coming into their own as a band, decades into their careers.
