Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin – Line On You (Stream)
by Steven Spoerl
Only a small handful more of these posts to go and the site will be caught up on all angles for the first time since 2014. Part of that’s due to periods of inactivity brought about by an intense schedule in the year’s opening stretch and part of the reasoning behind that apparent drought was the sheer amount of time it took to collect everything as it appeared. 2015’s been absolutely overflowing with great releases from new and established artists, some hitting unthinkable highs. Mainstays Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin have been gearing up to join that club over the past few weeks, releasing a string of songs that register as the best work of their career. Their latest single, “Line On You”, continues making a strong case for that particular argument. Before jumping into that song’s strengths, it’s almost necessary at this point to take a step back to cover some other outstanding material that’s been unearthed over the past week.
All of these posts are still going to regulate the featured titles to the single stream category and this time around, that category includes a very eclectic handful of tracks. There was Chomp’s basement punk and hardcore hybrid “The Rational Anthem“, Frances Cones’ blissed out dream pop tune “Wait Right Here“, Flesh World’s tension masterclass “Poolside Boys“, Amber Edgar’s breathtaking “Good Will Rise“, and It Was Romance’s punk-tinged indie pop number “Philadelphia“. Cayucas unveiled their compellingly frenetic “Moony Eyed Walrus“, DMA’s “Your Low” coasted on its carefree powerpop, The Weather Station released their startlingly gorgeous “Tapes“, and Eternal Summers’ characteristically stunning “Come Alive“. Then, of course, there was Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin’s “Line On You”.
With more than a few sections falling between early Weezer and site favorite Tony Molina, “Line On You” is one of the most energized pieces of music that Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin have ever crafted. Expertly marrying more than a few genre pastiches to create something genuinely electrifying. All of the songs that have emerged in the band’s rollout campaign have sounded like their most committed work to date, an impressive feat for a band already so far into their career. Warm tones, sunny melodies, and a whole host of unexpectedly supercharged aggression cement The High Country‘s position as a record worth greeting with heightened expectations. By the time the surging finale takes the song to its roaring conclusion, the band’s subverted their own position in today’s constantly shifting musical landscape and wound up with one of their most immensely enjoyable works to date.
