(Incidentally, these last two videos are a perfect starting point for a fascinating dive into 90's music videos as seen through the lens of cable mv show My Part Of The Thing - but that's another story...)
Thank you for posting From a motel 6. Yo la Tengo are the coolest band ever and I think this typifies why beautifully, they don't have to act cool their music does it for them. It's such a brilliantly subtle two fingers up at the industry, completely anti-charismatic. What the hell did the label replace it for?
thanks for this!
