The self-titled debut by Sylvan Esso is a collection of vivid addictions concerning suffering and love, darkness and deliverance. These 10 tunes were realized and recorded in Sanborn's Durham bedroom during the last year, an impressive feat considering the layers of activity and effects that populate them - the dizzyingly crisscrossed harmonies of 'Play it Right,' the gorgeously incongruous elements of 'Wolf,' the surreptitiously minimalist momentum of 'HSKT.' Sanborn's production is fully modern and wonderfully active. He enlists obliterating dubstep stutters and crisp electropop pulses, hazy electrostatic breezes and epinephrine dancefloor turnarounds.CD in 4 panel digipak with golden pantone.
