Sylvan Esso is a unique collaboration between Ameila Meath of folk group Mountain Man and Nick Sanborn, the bassist in Megafaun. Sanborn uses synths and other electronics to create pulsating grooves and swirling electronic atmospherics for Heath’s gorgeous and coquettish voice. Interestingly, her voice reminds me a little bit of Kalma Traver of Rubblebucket.
“Coffee” is the latest single off the duo’s forthcoming Coffee/Dress 12 inch, which will see a March 25th release through Partisan Records. The track is a slow-burning seductive track with a dreamy, almost distracted air.
