Sylvan Esso announce 12″, premiere track on StereogumMay 15th, 2013
Sylvan Esso is a collaboration between vocalist Amelia Meath and electronic musician Nick Sanborn. Meath’s powerful voice is front and center, unjoined by fellow harmonizers as it is in her folk group, Mountain Man. Sanborn, who plays bass in the genre-destroying Megafaun, creates intricate, pulsing grooves for Meath’s voice to inhabit. The pair’s debut is the Hey Mami / Play It Right 12″, a “single” with 2 A sides, featuring acapella and instrumental versions of each song. The record will be released July 16, 2013.
Stereogum has the premiere of the first track, “Hey Mami”.
