Sylvan Esso Celebrate New Release Tonight at Mercury LoungeJuly 17th, 2013
A chance meeting three years ago led to Mountain Man vocalist Amelia Meath and Megafaun multi-instrumentalist Nick Sanborn teaming up to form the duo Sylvan Esso. Their debut, a 12″, “Hey Mami”/”Play It Right” (stream it below), just came out yesterday on Trekky Records. It features two A-sides with an a cappella and instrumental version of each tune. Stereogum calls the single “the perfect synthesis of both groups’ sound—folksy crooning and layered harmonies from Meath and Sanborn’s crunchy synths that both bounce and stutter.” And Sylvan Esso celebrate its release tonight at Mercury Lounge.
