WATCH // Kids Millions Plays with Yo La Tengo on Jimmy Fallon

Did you watch Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday? If you didn’t, you should have! Kid Millions (Oneida) joined Yo La Tengo to play “Ohm.” He was one of THREE drummers, the other two were YLT’s Georgia Hubley (of course) and Fred Armisen. Watch above.

And if that isn’t enough – Questlove, Kids Millions, Georgia Hubley and Fred Armisen had a drum-off/jam session following the performance. We’re not kidding. Enjoy the madness HERE.

The deluxe bundle includes a LP version of I Bet On Sky in gorgeous gatefold litho-wrapped jacket, CD version of the album in six-panel wallet, limited-edition 7″ featuring two brand-new, non-album tracks: “Now the Fall” and “Ricochet,” 17″ x 22″ glossy poster featuring artwork by Travis Millard and digital download code for the entire album, redeemable on September 4th.

Early Praise for I Bet On Sky

“It sounds like a record that they could have released 20 years ago… There aren’t many bands that were once really big that break up, get back together and find that original magic. It just doesn’t really happen very often, but this is a band that I think has found that original magic, and this is a great-sounding record.” – NPR’s All Songs Considered

“Reunions don’t usually work out this well.” – Rolling Stone
