Their debut album will be released 5-13, with an album release party at Cats Cradle on 5-9 (tickets still available I think).

i think i already asked this in another thread, but is the album worth listening to if the first 3 songs didn't do much for me?

Found the album. I enjoyed it. If you've seen them live and enjoyed that, you'll like the album. Uncantena is good. Might be my favorite so far of the ones I hadn't already heard previously. (Hey Mami/Play it Right/Coffee).

Quote :
"The product of an unlikely pairing of musicians, Sylvan Esso works in equally unlikely ways: Singer Amelia Meath first surfaced as a singer in the largely a cappella Vermont folk group Mountain Man, while Nick Sanborn plays bass in the versatile North Carolina psych-rock band Megafaun.

The two met, however, when each was in solo mode, Meath as a singer and Sanborn as a producer of heady electronic music — and that's where Sylvan Esso combines, highlights and ultimately maximizes their talents, in ways that ought to make them both stars. Taut and tantalizing, the 10 songs on the pair's debut have countless different ways of grabbing and inviting attention; they wobble, seethe and coo with charismatic ambivalence.

In "Coffee," one of the year's best songs, gigantic hooks weave in and out as Meath projects warmth and weary grace while seasons change around her. In the irresistible "Hey Mami," she dissects the culture of catcalls while unleashing a few herself. "Play It Right" lavishly layers Meath's supple voice atop itself as sound shimmers and pops from every conceivable direction.

With the raw materials to both rock dance floors and initiate deep head-bobbing under headphones, Sylvan Esso utterly reinvents the already-promising careers at its core. Together, Meath and Sanborn make pop music with real potential to endure: Equally bright and dark, smart and seductive, it sets a high bar for the title of 2014's most intoxicating debut."

I'm probably in the minority with this, but I think this album blows that Chvrches album out of the water

that album bores the hell out of me, as does every live video of them I've seen

^^Seriously, I would love a remix edition of the entire album. I start bouncing in my car whenever "Dreamy Bruises" comes on. Trap remixes, plz.

Pretty rough here from Pitchfork. 6.2 rating.
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/19414-sylvan-esso-sylvan-esso/


Pitchfork reviews are pretty hit or miss for me. I think this one was a little unfair.

it's also an ian cohen review, and he's notoriously awful

i find it's generally not a good idea to read anything in a pitchfork review beyond the numerical score. i think they generally get that right more often than not. more so than other sites, pitchfork's reviews seem more about the reviewer than what's being reviewed.
