David Knight - 11th Feb 2013

Yo La Tengo and Phil Morrison go back a long way. Phil directed the video for The Summer from YLT's 1989 album Fakebook, and went on to make a couple of arch comedies for Tom Courtney and Sugarcube in 1997 - before the band performed the soundtrack for Phil's acclaimed debut movie Junebug.

The Sugarcube promo - a rock school parody years before School of Rock - was the last time that Yo La Tengo's Ira, Georgia and James appeared in one of their own videos - until I'll Be Around, from the band's newest, 13th album Fade. But this is a different kettle of fish entirely. In fact, it is a pot of spicy tortilla soup, and Tortilla De Espana, made by the band at their home. This is indeed an indie-rock cooking show, with on-screen instructions struggling for space with lots more texts that aren't the lyrics of the song either, and an opening featuring another longtime Morrison associate, Superchunk's Mac McCaughan.
