Yo La Tengo is an indie-rock band formed of husband/wife Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley originating from Hoboken, New Jersey, U.S.

The name Yo La Tengo means “I have it” or “I’ve got her” in Spanish and is due to the band not wanting a name with any English connotations.

The band’s first two LP entitled “Ride The Tiger” and “New Wave Hot Dogs” released on Coyote Records was the first glimpse of the real potential for the band, and they’re follow up to it “President Yo La Tengo” almost sealed their fate in becoming a seriously well-acclaimed band.

The band is defined by their experimentation, their unwillingness to repeat past successes, their proclivity for space-rock drone sounds, jagged guitar, and unorthodox covers. They epitomize the obscure complexities of garage rock without any of the pretense familiar with indie-bands attempting to achieve cult status.

In 1993 Yo La Tengo joined forces with Matador Records and their first album on the new label “Painful” was produced by Roger Moutenot, who continued to produce all of their subsequent albums until 2013’s “Fade.” It was also the first album to feature James McNew on all of the songs. James McNew had been drumming solo under the moniker Dump before joining Yo La Tengo and his arrival gave the band a new emphasis, taking them to new heights. After more than 30 years Yo La Tengo’s albums have hit double figures, most of which were received with universal critical acclaim, yet the band is still challenging themselves, finding new ground to tread and new perspectives to view from.
