Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, 'Pershing' (Polyvinyl)

7
Pershing
Critical Mass
Label: Polyvinyl

by Josh Modell

This Missouri band's music is so plainly likable that they should consider running for public office -- even the off-putting name wouldn't deter any voters who appreciate the shy prettiness of the Shins and the sweeter, least brash moments of the New Pornographers. In fact, you might easily mistake the tuneful melancholy of "Think I Wanna Die" (MP3, video below) for the latter and the foggy, low-key "Glue Girls" for the former, and that's fine. SSLYBY don't want to cause a ruckus; they'll sway you by thawing hearts and inspiring satisfied nods.
