It’s hard to believe, but the Missouri-bred indie rock outfit Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin has been going strong for a decade at this point. Founded by co-songwriters Will Knauer and Philip Dickey, and undergoing many changes over its career, the plucky crew (currently a five-piece) recently released its fourth studio album, Fly By Wire, via Polyvinyl Records and has been on tour in support of it for the better part of this year. With a knack for infectious melodies and lively arrangements, the band visited our studio this fall to record a fantastic six-song set for our second Indie Rock Hit Parade Live Session. Three songs came from the new record, but the band also mixed in the title track from Let It Sway, the song “Modern Mystery” from its 2008 LP Pershing and a cover of The Vaselines song (by way of Nirvana) “Molly’s Lips.” Stream and download the set and check out a photo gallery below, read more about the band in Elizabeth Mazenko’s interview with them from this summer.
