Hoboken indie rock heroes Yo La Tengo performed at today’s Free at Noon concert, giving the sold-out crowd at World Cafe Live a taste of their dynamic new album Fade, which is released on Tuesday. “Ohm” galloped out the gate into a boisterous midtempo noise jam, while the drum-free “Cornelia and Jane” highlighted Georgia Hubley’s husky lead vocals, and “I’ll Be Around” brought the pace down to pin-drop quiet levels. The band wrapped the set up with another “I’ll Be Around” – a delightful, off-the-cuff rendition of the Detroit soul classic by The Spinners.
