Someone Still Loves You Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin!
MP3: Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin - Glue Girls
It's always great news when a great band gives word of a new great record. It's even greater when you get to hear a bit of said great record. Enter "Glue Girls", the lead track from Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin's upcoming "Pershing" lp. Even though "Broom", the band's last effort, feels so new, it being a reissue resulted in it appearing younger than it truly was. So while it's been some years since their last proper effort (the band dropped a killer seven inch last year [that I covered right here] which gave hint to what was to come), they seemed to have skipped a couple of albums worth of "feeling it out" to go straight to polished guitar pop brilliance. "Glue Girls" caught me off guard at first, because it was so different but I soon realized these seeds had been planted long ago.
I can't stop listening to the song and will be looking forward to April 8th, when "Pershing" drops on Polyvinyl.
