Product Details
Performer Notes
  • 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. ~ Andrew Leahey
Professional Reviews
Alternative Press (p.113) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[P]ower-pop, alt-country and jangle-rock tumble together in sloppy chaos...but jell because of undeniable hooks, raucous atmospheres and subtle orchestration."

Paste (magazine) - "LET IT SWAY is a feast of musical comfort food for the nostalgia-tripping slacker-chic children of the '90s."

Pitchfork (Website) - "'Back in the Saddle' backs up the mission-statement intent of its title, a sturdy foundation of anthemic guitars both folky and power chord-driven, support a carousel of alternate-reality radio melodies."
