Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin released their third full length studio album, Let It Sway, through Polyvinyl Records today, August 17th. The album was produced by Chris Walla of Death Cab For Cutie, who adds a bigger sound to the strong pop sensibilities that Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin has been creating since the release of their first album. Two songs off of the album, "Banned (By The Man)" and "Sink/Let It Sway", are available for download above. Also check out a video of the making of "Let It Sway" below.

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin is going out on a North American Tour for much of the rest of the year to support the release of the album. Part of that trip is with Merge Records recording artist Telekinesis, and that part of the trek includes NYC on September 8 at Bowery Ballroom with third opening act, The Mommyheads, who have been named in the past by Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin as one of their favorite groups. Tickets for the NYC show are still available now.

The Mommyheads recently re-released their classic album, Flying Suit, on Dromedary Records with three bonus tracks, one of which (Box) is available for download above. The album was originally released in 1995 to excellent reviews and widespread college radio airplay, but The Mommyheads disbanded three years later. Since reuniting in 2008, there has been renewed interest in the band. The Mommyheads have just returned from a Swedish tour and a live video of the song "Jaded" is available below.

Can't wait until September? The Mommyheads are playing The Rock Shop with Conversion Party, Sarin McHugh, and The Everymen on August 19. Tickets are on sale. They're also at the Living Room on October 2nd.

SSLYBY is a great band with a crappy name. The new album is excellent. Reminds me a little bit of Weezer when they were good.

I have 2 tickets to see Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin at Bowery Ballroom in New York next Weds 9/8. I unfortunately cannot attend but do not want the tickets to go to waste! I will sell both for $20 (much cheaper than from ticketmaster!)
Please e-mail me at julie.geifman@gmail.com for more info. I can e-mail you the tickets!
