The Yo La Tengo singer-guitarist, whose band just released its 15th studio album, There’s a Riot Going On, is digging a diverse group of tunes at the moment. “They aren’t really by acts that get mentioned in Rolling Stone much,” says Kaplan.

(Yo La Tengo are currently on tour in Europe; they’ll return to the U.S. for some West Coast dates later this month.)
