I love Lou Reed (r.i.p.) but I can’t write about him


Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin is a special band. They are capable of much. They persevere. In a lot of ways this band reminds me of the Impossibles--another personal listening fixation--in that they have released album after album of great songs (I feel like this is a band that engenders strong feelings of loyalty in its listeners), a compilation of b-sides, demos, rarities--they've done a lot for band that's not exactly 'celebrated.' "Harrison Ford" is another perfect example of what they do so well: quiet vocals, clever lyrics, weird and wonderful melodic turns. Let's agree to cherish bands like this, you know, that make simple and beautiful songs for decades on end.

  1. I don’t love Boris Yeltsin but I do love the band that does.
