Yo La Tengo share new video for “Ohm” (playing the Mann Center tonight)
Yo La Tengo have shared a new animated video for their song “Ohm” off of this year’s Fade LP. The clip presents a self-aware approach to music videos, starting off with the question “what is Yo La Tengo?” and proceeding to follow a cigar-smoking baby on a journey through technicolor dream lands, mystical underwater worlds and a “brick in the wall”-esque factory. All the while a dapper-looking professor is untangling a complicated mathematical formula to find the essence of the trio, which apparently includes bits of Jack Black and Macy Gray. Yo La Tengo heads out to the Mann Center tonight for a show with Belle & Sebastian; tickets and information can be found here.
