Sylvan Esso (mems of Mountain Man + Megafaun) released a 12″, opening for Volcano Choir at Metro
Slyvan Esso is the new project of Mountain Man's Amelia Meath and Megafaun's Nick Sanborn. The pair just recently welcomed their debut effort, "Hey Mami" // "Play It Right" 12", via Trekky Records. On the 12", Meath approaches vocals similarly to the way she does in Mountain Man with a bit more soul behind it. Sanborn then joins her with thick, quivering synth leads and suddenly everything merges together beautifully. You can take a listen to both tracks at the bottom of this post and the 12" also includes accapella and instrumental versions of each.
Slyvan Esso will be hitting the road with Volcano Choir (yet another Frankenstein-like combo) this fall. As discussed, that tour kicks off with a performance at Metro on September 6. Advance tickets for the Chicago show are still available.
