I was in Austin, Texas last weekend for the Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL Festival).  I’m still on an acoustic high from all the new music and bands I got to hear. One of those wonderful discoveries was Sylvan Esso.

From North Carolina, lead singer Amelia Meath explains that this song came out of ‘cat calls and vulgar taunts’ from rude guys on the street. This style of music was prevalent throughout the weekend and done no better than Sylvan Esso. It consists of a lead singer and one keyboard/programmer/DJ. Here, her vocals are sampled then looped back to form wonderful layers until they drop the bass and percussion in.
