Straight from their name, hopefully you can tell that Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin is a fun band. They’re a pretty wacky group of guys and their music is bouncy, whipsmart pop. They’re on their third album now, titled “Let It Sway”, and it’s a nice sort of evolution from their previous efforts. They were also fortunate enough to have Death Cab for Cutie’s Chris Walla producing it for them, and that’s one of the things extensively discussed in the interview portion of this Live Friday session. You can stream that below, but the songs are up for download (as they typically are). And while the performances of these three songs are very strong, hearing it doesn’t quite compare to the visual energy the band displays on stage. Take this as an invitation to get to know SSLYBY a little better in anticipation of hopefully seeing them next time they roll through your town.
