The Riot act

As part of the press they've been doing around the release of new LP There's A Riot Going On, Yo La Tengo have done Pitchfork's 5-10-15-20 feature, in which artists name "the songs and albums of their lives, five years at a time". You could guess at the band's catholic tastes from the sheer diversity of their albums, but features like this - in which they talk about everything from Black Flag to El-P via Bob Dylan, The Residents and Fleetwood Mac - and Ira Kaplan's selection of favourite records for the Quietus just underline it.
