Pretty girls park where they want to.

Sure Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin is a long and pretty silly name for a band, I will give you that, but it wouldn’t be fair to judge this quartet of white boys from Springfield off that alone. While even they recognize their journey as a band, and the fact that it has taken them roughly 10 years to record just over an hour and a half of music on three albums to be a tad ridiculous, their most recent endeavor, Let It Sway, is their finest and most creative effort thus far. Plainly speaking, this is a feel good pop album that’s perfect for those last days of summer when you’re trying to squeeze in one more pool party and/or weenie roast (unless of course you live in Austin and then you know we have at least 4 more months of warmth for those activities).Playful harmonies and the perfect amount of old school alternative rock production make this album absolutely delicious. If you’re not sure what I mean by old school production, I recommend you watch the below documentary on the making of Let It Sway and what the it took to record this album (mono and driving dog are just extras)…the film also includes snippets from most of the best tracks. The track I am posting today is the album’s cornerstone, Sink/Let It Sway,  it’s upbeat, catchy pop, and yes, it might be a simple formula, but SSLYBY does their best to jazz it up in a way that begs you, as the listener, to let it sway.

LISTEN TO IT!
