Primavera Preview #4: Condo Fucks

Those of us who have had the pleasure of seeing Yo La Tengo live in concert are often surprised how a band that is relatively low-key on record can suddenly turn into a noisy garage act on stage.  Where does this aggression come from and how come it never makes the cut onto their dreamy albums?  The answer to that is Condo Fucks.  While effortlessly shredding through covers of bands like The Small Faces and The Troggs, their work is refreshingly versatile in that you can share the enjoyment of an old playing their favorite rock staples.  It only seems fitting that a band that has already built a reputation for including numerous covers on their albums would create a completely different entity to reflect their diverse musical tastes.  Expect a short and rambunctious set, full of psychedelic nuggets.
