Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin – “Step Brother City”

I can’t think of a band that makes more consistently perfect pop songs than Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. The band has literally grown up together; main songwriters Will and Philip met in high school and the rest of the band came together shortly thereafter, quickly garnering a committed following in hometown Springfield, MO and in nearby Columbia. They’ve been making seriously addictive albums since 2002, and along the way, toured the world, had babies and were cultural ambassadors to Russia

Their new album is out this summer. It’s called The High Country and is an excellent place to start if you are new to SSLYBY. It’s full of innocent-enough-sounding songs that bore their way into your skull before you have a chance to realize what’s happening. “Step Brother City” is a fine example of such a song. Take a listen, if you dare:
