That Sylvan Esso LP


#1

Fucking hell.

Every track’s an absolute banger.


#2

Agreed. Top LP. Thought they came across well on 6 Music last week too.


#3

I like it, but I still prefer their debut, which I thought was fantastic.

Still enjoying this though. Kick Jump Twist and Die Young are superb tracks.


#4

The hook in Just Dancing.

Jesus Christ.


#5

Thank you for mentioning this. I remember seeing a video of their’s on the telly (weird way to find about decent new music, I know) and liking it / being surprised to hear something new and good while idly skimming through music channels.


#6

From the description of their music (only read a review the other day) they seem to be the kind of band I would love. Just about to check them out.


#7

It’s so good!!! Big fan of Signal & Slack Jaw. And Die Young is still an abso banger.

Anyone seeing them in London in Nov? Bummed I couldn’t get tix to their village underground show…


#8

Just discovered this album. Bloody love it!


#9

UPDATE: I love this band. I had heard the name, but this thread and news of the current album made me check them out. It’s precisely the kind of thing I am digging at the moment. Electronic, slightly off kilter, dancey but not cheesy stuff. I love Purity Ring, so it’s right up my strasse.


#10

Have you listened to Flock of Dimes? You might like that one too…


#11

Thanks. Yes, quite like it on first listen. Looking her up, I quite like Wye Oak, so it makes sense…


#12

Anyone seen these Echo Mountain Sessions being posted by NPR this week? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riQLL65OMfQ (also up on Spotify).

Full band sound is great, would love them to tour that.


#13

Yeah, they’ve been tweeting it. Semi-tempted by the ltd vinyl release of it.


#14

And yes. Full band tour please.
