Yo La Tengo have today released an EP of instrumental tracks created in lockdown, called We Have Amnesia Sometimes.

Explains the band’s Ira Kaplan: “In late April, with the outside world weighing on everybody, we determined that the three of us could assemble in Hoboken without disobeying the rules laid out by Governor Murphy, and resumed – ‘practicing’ hardly describes it, because we’ve done no practicing per se, and anyway what would we be practicing for – playing. James set up one microphone in the middle of the room in case we stumbled on something useful for the future. Instead we decided to release some of the things we did right now.”
