Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin
Despite Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin’s now-gloomy name—the pompadoured Russian leader was still alive and kicking when it formed—the Missouri quartet plays highly accessible indie pop for sweater-wearing people who think Death Cab For Cutie is too intense. Perhaps it’s appropriate, then, that Death Cab guitarist Chris Walla produced the band’s latest saccharine long-player, Let It Sway. Judging from tracks like “Sink/Let It Sway” and the sing-along shanty “Back In The Saddle,” it’s doubtful the band will be pushing into deep, gloomy territory anytime soon. This October, the band released a new album of previously unreleased songs, B-sides, and rare recordings called Tape Club.
