On their new EP, Yo la Tengo has apparently taken to covering themselves. That's right, a few of the songs are covers of past Yo la Tengo songs. And because they are Yo la Tengo, I can't help but believe that this is awesome. None of us will never be cool enough to do something audacious and self-indulgent and have it come across as great. Same for most musicians. Can you imagine - the Strokes covering themselves? Robbie Williams? Not awesome. Yo la Tengo recording a toilet flushing for half an hour? Awesome. Somehow. They've earned it.
