Song(s) Of The Week: Sylvan Esso’s “Coffee” (and “Play It Right”)

Jan 24th, 2014 in Music


We are hopeless addicts of the bean, and there can be no better way to end your week musically than by getting completely hooked on Sylvan Esso’s new song CoffeeSylvan Esso recently signed to Partisan/Trekky Records and is comprised of Amealia Meath (Mountain Man) and Nick Sanborn (Megafaun).  Listen to the duo’s superb electronic sonic and let Meath’s world-weary chorus (“Get up, get down”) hook you hard.  Her vocals remind of the much-missed Jessica Lea Mayfield, but the musical setting sets Sylvan Esso apart in the field.  Too dang good!  And when you can’t listen to Coffee again (after about 100 listens), listen to their previously-released, similarly-catchy track Play It Right.  Wow!  We can’t wait for their impending recordings.  Listen to both tracks below.  The band heads out on tour soon–check the dates, including LA at the Satellite on February 11th, below the tracks.

1/28 Washington DC – DC9
