New Yo La Tengo Album Due in March?

For a band that makes such (relatively) sober music, Yo La Tengo sure like to kid around. From the Hanukkah shows to the radio covers bonanzas (and resulting Yo La Tengo Is Murdering the Classics disc) to an album called I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass to the “Fun” section of their website, the Jersey vets know well that a little levity goes a long way.

…which brings us to Fuckbook, the forthcoming album from Condo Fucks, due March 10 from Matador. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury:

Exhibit A: Members of Yo La Tengo have previously performed under the Condo Fucks banner (alongside members of Brooklyn garage rockers the A-Bones). They’ve also employed secret identities for side projects in the past, such as Sleeping Pill (aka Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley), who played Terrastock 7 this year.

Exhibit B: The album is called Fuckbook, which sounds suspiciously similar to a certain 1990 Yo La Tengo long-player.

Exhibit C: “What’cha Gonna Do About It?”, a song from Fuckbook that Matador recently included on the label’s fall Intended Play MP3 sampler. YLT in garage mode…?

Exhibit D: Matador is neither confirming nor denying anything right now.
