Yo La Tengo announce 25th anniversary reissue of I Can Hear the Heart Beating As One

yo la tengo i can hear the heart beating as one anniversary

Today is the 25th anniversary of Yo La Tengo‘s landmark album I Can Hear the Heart Beating As One, and to mark the occasion, Matador Records has announced a new vinyl reissue of the album. It’ll be released on translucent yellow vinyl on July 29, along with some special merch to go along with it: “President McKinley Academy of Rock” sweatshirts, which ’90s viewers of 120 Minutes will remember from the “Sugarcube” video, in which the band gets schooled in how to be rock stars. (Which also stars Bob Odenkirk and David Cross.) The vinyl reissue also comes with bonus tracks of remixes from the album. Check that out below along with the “Sugarcube” video, and check out a discussion between David Cross and the band on the making of the video.

Director Phil Morrison says in a press release, “It was fun! (Pretty rare for a music video.) And such a good group of people making it for pretty much nothing, including David Doernberg, Joe Ventura, Nicole Whitaker, James Whitaker, Michael Mees, Leesa Evans, Damon Chesse, Amy Silver, Elena Balshem, Matt Chesse, Bill Ryan, Dennis Callaci (and maybe Allen Callaci and Chris Jones), and many more. The school sweatshirts were made by the legendary The Wizard, on Sunset near The Roxy and The Rainbow.”
