A few of the things we’re listening to this week, in no particular order:

Yo La Tengo

Matador

A giant wet dream for rock geeks everywhere: Yo La Tengo covers a lefty Sun Ra tune. Thank goodness, the band drowns out any pretension with catchy rhythms and Langley School-aged kiddies belting out their response to that mushroom cloud: “It’s a motherfucker!” Cursin’ kids always win. —Jason Cherkis
