Formed by husband-and-wife duo Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley in Hoboken, New Jersey in 1984, Yo La Tengo has succeeded as one of rock's most consistent and innovatively independent bands. In his new book, journalist Jesse Jarnow explores not only the band's journey and identity, but the evolving indie rock scene in which they built their singular career. The following photos of the band and related artifacts were collected for the book and not included, but you can see them here.
