Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Let It Sway
2010 | Label: Polyvinyl Records

Surviving the hype-mongering early stages for a buzz band can be a treacherous thing.

After pulling double duty as producers and performers on their first two albums, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin hand the production reins over to Chris Walla, who fills the band’s third record with a mix of quirky, lo-fi gloss and nuanced arrangements. This is a breezy record, shot through with jangled bits of folk, rock, and alt-country but largely focused on the group’s pop sensibilities.
