Tokyo-based psych rock band Yura Yura Teikoku opened for Yo La Tengo Tuesday night (09/15/09) at Higher Ground in Burlington, one of a few shows they played on YLT's tour. You can catch their next show at the MHW with Jessica 6 tomorrow. (And YLT tomorrow in DC with Endless Boogie.) Signed with Mesh-Key, Yura Yura Teikoku's music is loud, beautiful, and fun. Some of it is downright haunting, some of it makes you want to catch some tasty tubes, and all of it makes you feel like you could be in a scene from that Sofia Coppola movie with Scarlett Johansson.
Oh, and Yo La Tengo's new stuff is just the best.
