Yo La Tengo Get Cooking in 'I'll Be Around'

Rolling Stone

Yo La Tengo venture into a lonely forest in the new video for Fade track "I'll Be Around," and the intimate, minimal acoustic track gets an equally sparse video treatment. As the softly picked song breezes through the trees, bits of a narrative are superimposed on the screen, alternating with recipes for spicy tortilla soup and a tortilla española. The camera drifts through nature, eventually finding (for some reason) Superchunk frontman Mac McCaughan playing an acoustic guitar by himself in a clearing. Later, the view shifts to Yo La Tengo making the recipes, but as they grub down, police arrive to arrest bassist James McNew. Guess he won't be around after all.
