With Love

By: Laurie Gallardo

The subtleties make the sound of Sylvan Esso so tremendous. It’s a build.

The electronic wizardry of Nick Sanborn paired with the ultra-cool low-volume vocal powers of Amelia Meath show off this intuitive interaction in an intimate sound space that keeps the ear transfixed, from their self-titled 2014 debut to their recent, slightly more minimalist release,  Free Love. The common thread is a melodic sensuality; the sounds may be darker, disconcerting, but you can dance your ass off for days.

Sylvan Esso is concluding a three-part livestream series From the Satellite this week with the final installment, “With Love,” including music from Free Love and previous releases. The show starts at 8 p.m. (Central) tomorrow night, Tuesday December 1, at Noonchorus. Your virtual ticket gets you into the show, and the chance to get all kinds of cool merch.
