Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin

If that name isn't gonna get you to rock their mellow indie pop, then I guess I'm going to have to write some more.

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin hails from Missouri, and they have been sort of floating along the musical blogosphere since 2005 when they released their rough, lo-fi debut Broom to certain acclaim within that sphere, and within that sphere only.  They write good '60s-swaying pop songs with all the sound of the '90s, not distorted, not crackly, just that bit of guitar crunch to give a little edge.  Combined with lo-fi sensibility, they are less eccentric than a Weezer, though the lead singer does bring us to a Rivers Cuomo, and even a little Conor Oberst (without the deliberation).  Good stuff.  Mellow without the sorrowful jello.

"Sink / Let It Sway" - The first single from their upcoming album Let It Sway that drops in August.

"Glue Girls" - Sweet hooks to keep you going for the rest of the lazy afternoon.
