(93) Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin - "Yellow Missing Signs"

[In the past, I've written short blurbs for each of the year's 100 Songs.  Some of these "short blurbs" were actually thousands of words long, but you get the idea.  This year, sadly, I didn't have time to do that.  But I still have a lot to say about almost all of these songs.  So I'm just going to start writing.  This is one of a still-undetermined number of essays.  Maybe I'll find something to say about all 100 Songs.  Maybe there will just be a handful of these.  I'll try to write one every day, but I make no promises.  Also, they will be in no real order.  In case it gets buried, the original 100 Songs for 2011 post, with links, can be found here.]

(93) Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin - "Yellow Missing Signs"

If, upon listening to 100 Songs for 2011, your immediate response is "I need to go see some live music as soon as possible," and you live in the San Francisco area ... I suggest you come see Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin tonight at the Hotel Utah.  It's only $10!  Ilana and I saw them last year at Bottom of the Hill and they were great.

"Yellow Missing Signs" comes from Tape Club, a collection of b-sides and rarities released by the band in October.  It's available for free streaming over at Bandcamp, where you can actually stream the band's entire catalog, including 2010's near-perfect Let It Sway.

Now that you've listened to all their music for free ... the least you could do is come to the concert tonight.
