“Coffee” – Sylvan Esso

My new summertime jam?  Possibly.  That is a pretty sick beat.  And am digging that lady’s moves!  I would pay to see her dance with the Future Islands guy.  Although I don’t believe the world is ready for that.


Here’s the official video

Electronic duo Sylvan Esso is a collaboration between vocalist Amelia Meath of folk trio Mountain Man, and producer Nick Sanborn, bassist from Megafaun. The project melds Amelia’s confident vocals with the sputtering synths, chopped up samples and hip hop grooves that Nick first explored with his solo project Made of Oak. The duo approach the stage as balanced parts of the equation, performing with such energy that you can be sure they are both having a great time. We invited the band to visit the Wilderness Bureau to record a live session for us, and all had a tough time sitting still during their electric set.
