Watch Yo La Tengo Play Fallon With Fred Armisen

Yesterday, Hoboken indie greats Yo La Tengo released Fade, their utterly gorgeous new album. And last night, they celebrated that release by serving as musical guests on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Former Trenchmouth drummer Fred Armisen, alongside another guy I don’t recognize, sat in on drums next to Georgia Hubley as the band played a slightly abbreviated version of “Ohm,” the album’s searching, percussive opener. And as an online bonus, they also played the hazy and drumless album track “I’ll Be Around.” With both performances, they affirmed that this is a band you should absolutely go see when they’re in your town. Watch both below.

Fade is out now on Matador.
