Yo La Tengo - "I'll Be Around"

I haven't been able to full connect to Fade, the latest from the wonderful Yo La Tengo. But I love the acoustic, atmospheric number "I'll Be Around" from it -- and I really like this video. It's directed by Phil Morrison, who made the gem Junebug, which incorporated a score from Yo La Tengo. (On a side note, I wonder when I'll get to see his new film, which was called Almost Christmas but is now known as All Is Bright and received pretty lukewarm reviews from the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year.) As for this "I'll Be Around" video, if you've ever wanted to see the band make a meal together, this clip is going to blow your mind.
