Grizzly Bear - "Yet Again" Video

Here's a band for years that I have been trying to love but I still only use them for background music. I've seen them live and that won me over a little but it wasn't sustainable. I gave up soon after. Giving the new LP another spin this morning and wondering, what am I missing? Why do people fall so hard for Grizzly Bear? Anyway, watch "Yet Again" below, 'cause you know that you are "supposed to" love these dudes.
