Just released album creating the proverbial buzz…
By Barbi Martinez, Blurt intern
We are based in North Carolina, so it almost goes without saying that we love Durham, NC, duo Sylvan Esso. But we’ll say it anyway: WE LOVE SYLVAN ESSO! Ever since last year’s “Hey Mami” 12″ was released on local label Trekky, not to mention a bust-out performance at the 2013 Hopscotch Festival in Raleigh, we have known that these folks were going to be huge. Their self-titled album for national indie Partisan is creating a big stir, even notching a glowing review on NPR today (May 13) from reviewer Will Hermes and generating an interview on NPR’s “Weekend Report” a few days ago.
We have a review incoming, but just to bring you up to musical speed, here are some clips by this talented duo that you can absorb.
