New Music Report: The Drums, Plus Yo La Tengo


In this week's roundup of the best new releases, Kevin O'Donnell breaks down the debut EP from the Drums, one of indie-rock's biggest buzz bands this fall. Summertime delivers spiky post-punk and super-catchy songs about surfing and going to the beach, kind of like an upbeat Cure. Plus, there's Yo La Tengo's Popular Songs, one of their best and most diverse albums yet. The Hoboken, New Jersey trio break out delicate ballads, ghostly pastorals and feedback-drenched jams on their latest LP. Listen to samples of the records' best tracks and get the full report in the video, above.
