Yo La Tengo just released a video for Fade‘s lovely little acoustic “I’ll Be Around,” starring Superchunk‘s Mac McCaughan and lyrics popping up from a bunch of other YLT songs compiled together. You might stop and think, ew, lyric video (as I would) but it translates much better than imagined.
The title page alone, after the band lets you know the video is based on and inspired by true events, is lyrics from “Deeper Into Movies,” “On My Way,” and “I’ll Be Around” itself.
AND toward the end, there’s a tasty-sounding recipe for Spicy Tortilla Soup displayed. A video that’s cute AND educational (and spicy!). Here you have it:
Fade is out now on Matador. Yo La Tengo play to a sold out Town House February 16.
