16-10-2011 // Album: Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin - Tape Club


Technically, this album will be released in 2 days, but the great thing about Bandcamp is that you can already hear the album and purchase it through their system. So October 18 is only the physical release date of ‘Tape Club’. A collection of 26 (!!) songs that Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin have written in the 10 years they’ve been making music together. If anything, this collection shows that this band is capable of using a lot of different styles in their music. Listening to 10 years of Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin is like listening to 50 years of music history. Although the 60s and 70s are probably most referenced in their music, the 80s and more clearly the 90s are unmistakenly there. Since the new millenium music has donated a lot of it’s time on looking back it only makes sense that a band that’s been around for 10 years combines all the good stuff from the past.

Because it’s good stuff they’re combining. This collection takes a few spins to get used to, as it is clearly a collection of different songs from different moments in their evolution. As to where a whole album usually is more in sync with itself. But the great power here is that huge range of sounds they offer. They could probably not make a better introduction for themselves as a band as they have done with 'Tape Club'. Another highlight for 2011, one of many, but one of the brightest ones..!
