Tape Club

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Lymangrover
Limited to 3,000 copies, Tape Club is a compilation of Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin's B-sides and demos in unreleased versions that range from polished studio recordings of the full band in action to rough solo takes on acoustic guitar. In the Midwestern indie pop group's downtime between 2002 and 2011, the trio or sometimes quartet recorded often.

Limited to 3,000 copies, Tape Club is a compilation of Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin's B-sides and demos in unreleased versions that range from polished studio recordings of the full band in action to rough solo takes on acoustic guitar. In the Midwestern indie pop group's downtime between 2002 and 2011, the trio or sometimes quartet recorded often.

Fans of the simple and true will appreciate "Spinning Sea" and "Let's Get Tired" from the early years, or the warm Shins and Deerhunter qualities of the "Phantomwise" and "Back in the Saddle" demos, which would later make it onto Let It Sway. Imperfections and all, the small basement or bedroom environments and accompanying tape hiss feel better suited to the band than the flashy sheen of its full-lengths. A chronological ordering gives a sense to the band's progress, a definite perk, but the big payoff with Tape Club is that it offers a chance to see through to the heart of SSLYBY's songs and realize how charming they can be without the big-league production.
