“Avalon or Something Very Similar” (Video)


    Yo La Tengo are kicking it retro in the songs that have been released from Popular Songs, rocking out like it’s 1987 all over again. “Avalon or Something Very Similar” is the third song from the album to get the video treatment, and it’s low-budget just like the rest, with triangles serving as the video’s stars. I’m not sure what they’re supposed to represent, but I know I’d be scared shitless if a bunch of them covered my face when I was trying to nap in a park.


    Popular Songs is due out on Sept. 8 via Matador. [Stereogum]
