Celebrate Brooklyn: Sylvan Esso / Porches
Jul 25, 2015 @ 7:30 pm| Free
Obliterating dubstep stutters and crisp electropop pulses. Hazy electrostatic breezes and epinephrine dancefloor turnarounds. SYLVAN ESSO—the singer Amelia Meath of Mountain Man and the producer (and Megafaun bassist) Nick Sanborn—create “endlessly elastic and three-dimensional” (NPR) songs that conjure up dreamlike conflations of sensuality and sexual depravity, homesickness and wanderlust, nostalgia and immediacy.
The prolific songwriter Aaron Maine’s PORCHES has mined darker and weirder sonic territory in the past, but its latest incarnation—a lineup that includes Greta Kline of Frankie Cosmos—makes “danceable, shimmery pop with rock instruments (keyboards too), in an ’80s-sorta way.” (Brooklyn Vegan)
