Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Army Navy

PETE COTTELL
9 pm., Tuesday November 19 | $12.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 
[INDIE POP] If this were 1991, it’d be safe to assume a band named after the first president of post-USSR Russia was an agitprop hardcore outfit. A few decades later, a ludicrous name that’s only slightly less annoying to truncate can mean only one thing: indie pop, obviously. Springfield, Mo.’s SSLYBY (ugh) certainly has the pedigree of a melodically advanced band of sincere Midwestern dudes: appeasing nods from Spin and Pitchfork; a buzzed-about debut released by earnest-core powerhouse Polyvinyl; and a saccharine sense of melody that bounces around like a caffeinated 6-year-old. If you’re in search of an OC Mix-approved alternative to the Shins, SSLYBY’s (ugh) latest, Fly By Wire, is a great place to start.
