Song of the Day: Yo La Tengo - From a Motel 6

My first Yo La Tengo purchase was 1995's Electr-O-Pura, a record that received accolades from many of the mainstream publications (remember, this was pre-internet, more or less).  This led to other purchases and a love for a band that continues to release viable records, 25 years into their existence. 

This track comes from 1993's Painful, my favorite YLT album.  It seems to perfectly encapsulate everything the band excels in - boy/girl vocals, glorious feedback, and groove.
