yo la tengoYo La Tengo have unveiled an apocalyptic video to contrast their laid-back cover of The Cure’s “Friday I’m in Love.”

In the video, drummer Georgia Hubley walks around Silver Lake casually picking up multicolored trinkets while people literally explode around her and giant hearts rain down like meteorites. Bandmates Ira Kaplan and James McNew also appear, though McNew loses most of his body in the mayhem. It’s a perfect marrying of twee and doomsday sensibilities.

The song can be found on Stuff Like That There, an upcoming compilation album of re-recorded old YLT songs and covers. It’s due Aug. 28 on Matador, and you can preorder it now on LP and CD.

Watch the video below:
