Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin – Perishing

Somebody Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin

In sub-pop it easy to lose a band in the shuffle, after all, it seems catchy melodies featuring soft spoken singers are a dime a dozen these days in the indie-pop genre. However, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin seems to have been able to cleverly avoid getting lost in the wide open sea of sub-pop with an obscure reference to the former President of Russia as a name. On their latest record, “Perishing” (4/8/08), these kids from Missouri have nailed the indie-pop genre with a slew of songs featuring witty lyrics backed by catchy distorted guitar licks. It seems to be a slight departure from their debut album, “Broom“, and sounds as if they have studied the Elephant Six Collection and really brought that calming melodic sound made famous by Beulah and Of Montreal. No sophomore slump here.

Highlights Include, “You Could Write A Book“, “Dead Right”, “The Beach Song”, and the eery pop anthem, “Think I Wanna Die”.
