Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin still gives off a band-least-likely vibe, despite being together for nearly 15 years. Left to their own devices, SSLYBY's four members would probably keep recording in Will Knauer's parents' attic in Springfield, Missouri, where the band made its last album, Fly by Wire
The low-key recording approach makes for accessible and precious pop songs, and "Young Presidents" and "Nightwater Girlfriend" are featherweight and golden-hued. They're the perfect soundtrack for sticky summer nights - like Saturday's homecoming show at the Riot Room. Better yet, you don't have to be well-versed in Russian history to appreciate SSLYBY.
