There’s not a ton more I can add about Yo La Tengo that hasn’t been said about them on this site already and recently, at that. Suffice it to say, they are a classic band who have only continued to grow and evolve with time, and any opportunity to see YLT is one worth taking. The band has been on an intense tour schedule for most of this year behind their latest, Fade, but they still sound as fresh as they did debuting the new material back in December at Maxwell’s. This one-hour set at the Solid Sound Festival is an abridged version of a full YLT show, but YLT still packed in a variety of great material, including the excellent combination of “Ohm” and “Blue Line Swinger” to close out the night. They will be hitting a number of other festivals and various shows in North America, the UK and Japan this summer, and we‘d recommend you not miss them if they’re in your city.

Site contributor Kubacheck recorded this set with MBHO cardiod microphones from near the soundboard. While the large room and the distance from the band were not ideal, the sound quality of the recording is nonetheless quite good. Enjoy!

Low: June 19, 2013 Music Hall of Williamsburg + June 22, 2013 Solid Sound Festival (North Adams, MA) – FLAC/MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs and Full Sets

Our affection for the band Low is well-known; we were blown away by their performance earlier this year at the Society for Ethical Culture, touring behind their latest record The Invisible Way, as well as the performance by Alan Sparhawk’s other band, Retribution Gospel Choir, at Knitting Factory that found that band guesting with frequent Wilco collaborator Nels Cline.

These two almost back-to-back shows, first at Music Hall of Williamsburg, and next at the Solid Sound Festival — where our now-famous Wilco recording came from — did nothing to dim that affection. Despite the more traditional club setting, this Music Hall set was a subtler, less rocking affair than the show in the church, with fewer of Sparhawk’s guitar pyrotechnics and more emphasis on the band’s more traditionally “slowcore” numbers, including some rarer early material. But the highlight for me was the night’s biggest rocker, “Canada”, from the band’s album Trust and no longer a set regular. Likewise, at Solid Sound, Low continued to demonstrate why they’ve enjoyed a nearly 20-year career with no sign of slowing down, playing a set that differed significantly from just a few nights before. They may call this “slow”-core, but this has been a band of constant and exciting momentum.

The Music Hall recording suffered from some early technical issues that required me to switch to my mics a few songs in. The first and fourth songs of the set are missing as a result, the second song fades in, and the fifth, “Holy Ghost”, contains the noise of me setting up the mics. Once things settled down, it was smooth sailing from there and the sound was excellent. The Solid Sound set, graciously provided by DC-based site collaborator Kubacheck, is likewise an excellent recording, albeit with a bit more crowd chatter and made at more distance than the Music Hall show. It also has none of the Music Hall show’s flaws. Please enjoy!
