WIN AN OFFICIAL TAPE FROM THE SOMEONE STILL LOVES YOU BORIS YELTSIN “TAPE CLUB”

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin is obviously the #1 band around here at Modern Mystery (Hey we named the site after them, right?), and we have an AMAZING contest for you to enter, that hell, we’re dying to get a piece of ourselves.

Feast your eyes upon the exclusive, original, Tape Club tape from the month April (2006), that Polyvinyl was nice enough to hook us up with. Not only will you win the rare tape from the old club, but also a copy of Tape Club, their new album of demos and unreleased songs due out October 18th on Polyvinyl. Your choice of Black Vinyl or CD. A 26-song double album that spans 10 years of SSLYBY greatness.

The title is a direct reference to the subscription service SSLYBY started in late 2005 to raise money for tour while copies of their debut Broom (which they had just self-released) were quickly selling out. In exchange for signing up, fans were treated to cassette home recordings of unreleased songs packaged in handmade covers.

To Enter, please E-mail us at MODERNMYSTERYBLOG@YAHOO.COM by Wednesday, October 12th, 2011 at Midnight with your Name and Address. You must live in the U.S. to enter.

You can listen to Tape Club in it’s entirety at http://sslyby.bandcamp.com

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin Breaks Down “Let It Sway”


Some indie bands have really strong, almost obsessive fan bases, and the boys of Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin are on the top of the list. Recently, Meghan Baier who runs the band’s most notable website called I Am Warm and Powerful, conducted an interview with Phil Dickey and Will Knauer from the band, in which they answered fan submitted questions about Let It Sway (Polyvinyl). Touching on all topics imaginable in regards to the new record, the guys open up in their charming SSLYBY way as always. The band has just released their new, critically acclaimed album a couple of weeks ago, and it’s been a hit with the fans as well.

Head over to the site to read The Let It Sway Breakdown Interview, and be sure to check out the tour dates a few posts below.

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin Release New Track, “Banned (By the Man)”


Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin has just released a sneak peak at another song on their highly anticipated third Polyvinyl release, Let It Sway. The track is titled “Banned (By the Man)” and is a nice follow up to the first song they put out as the single, “Sink/Let It Sway.” SSLYBY can do indie pop like no other band out there. Each song is infectious and their talents are proven in every song. “Banned (By the Man)” featurs amazing harmonies on the band’s part which they really haven’t played around with too much in the past. The Chris Walla produced record will be out on August 17th. The Yeltsins are about to become HUGE.
