After pulling double duty as producers and performers on their first two albums, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin handed the production reins over to Chris Walla, who fills the band’s third record with a mix of quirky, lo-fi gloss and nuanced arrangements. Last we heard from the Missouri natives, they were micromanaging the bejeezus out of Pershing, resulting in a pleasant but slightly belabored album that didn’t quite follow through on the promise of their 2005 debut. Let It Sway is a breezy pop record, though, shot through with jangled bits of folk, rock, and alt-country and devoid of the painstaking approach that made Pershing stumble. Free to focus on the music instead of the production, SSLYBY come up with a sound that recalls early Sloan and Fountains of Wayne records, with slightly sloppy guitar solos and thick, double-tracked vocal harmonies drawing the clearest parallel between SSLYBY and the bands they emulate. Walla honors the band’s lo-fi roots by keeping things analog and D.I.Y.-sounding, occasionally tossing in some studio trickery but always doing so in a tasteful, light-handed way. Sometimes, this careful approach serves as a detriment to the bandmembers, who’d do well to crank up their amplifiers once in a while and see what their pop sensibilities sound like at high volume. On the other hand, Let It Sway is the sound of a band doing what it does best, and it’s nice to hear SSLYBY get their groove back.

Merge Records in 10 Albums

For over 30 years, the Chapel Hill-based Merge Records—co-founded in 1989 by musicians Mac McCaughan and Laura Ballance—has provided a home for creative and idiosyncratic independent musicians. Although in the '90s the label came to be associated with indie rock, the modern-day Merge Records roster is diverse.

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the 90s the trip hop wave flooded Great Britain with electro influenced by Jamaican music and rap beats. With dreamy rhythms and oppressive atmospheres, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and various others invented a futuristic kind of dark soul music which was sometimes very cinematographic. Time to zoom in on 10 albums from a genre with a fuzzy outline but a very clear influence.
