    ylt fallon 6001 Video: Yo La Tengo and Fred Armisen join forces on Fallon

    New Jersey veterans Yo La Tengo jumped the Hudson last night to appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, where they supported their latest album, Fade, with performances of “Ohm” and “I’ll Be Around”. For the former cut, the group tagged Portlandia star/Kaplan doppelgänger Fred Armisen (!) to sub as their third drummer. Yep, that pretty much says it all; though, there are countless things to say about Kaplan’s shirt. Here’s one: “nice.” Catch the somnolent-yet-hearty performances below.

    “Ohm”:

    “I’ll Be Around”:

    In related news, we recently dissected their entire catalogue and spoke with Kaplan about the new album and his time in Chicago. Also, did you know they’ll be hitting the road soon?
