Quick Overview

Like many long-named buzz bands, SSLYBY makes charming, affable pop music worthy of its playful name. Its home-recorded debut, Broom, sounded like Rivers Cuomo forgot his distortion pedal for Weezer practice. With Pershing following in April, the band is set to remind fans that someone still loves Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.


After pulling double duty as producers and performers on their first two albums, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin hand the production reins over to Chris Walla, who fills the band’s third record with a mix of quirky, lo-fi gloss and nuanced arrangements. This is a breezy record, shot through with jangled bits of folk, rock, and alt-country but largely focused on the group's pop sensibilities. Free to focus on the music instead of the production, SSLYBY brew up a sound that recalls early Sloan and Fountains of Wayne records, with slightly sloppy guitar solos and thick, double-tracked vocal harmonies drawing the clearest parallel between SSLYBY and the bands they emulate. Walla honors the band’s lo-fi roots by keeping things analog and homemade-sounding, occasionally tossing in some studio trickery but always doing so in a tasteful, light-handed way.
