Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin Preview New Album

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin is one of our favorite indie-pop acts around and we’ve been patiently waiting for a new album since they released Tape Club in 2011, their 26-song compilation consisting of unreleased songs, b-sides, and demos.
