This might be the Pitchfork talking, but while i like the highs of Sylvan Esso's album far better than the highs of Purity Ring's, as an album, I think I like Shrines more.

Bahaha thanks for sharing the David Cross link. That's awesome. Props to Pitchfork for actually posting it though, assuming they read any of it.

^ It's from 2005, when Pitchfork was less of a brand and took itself less seriously.

To be fair, that sense of humor still lurks, they just put it in features and columns in an effort to keep tone somewhat similar in reviews/interviews.

They're playing Haw River on Halloween. The tour dates post said tickets go on sale today for the headlining tour, but haven't seen any info on the Haw River show yet.

If anyone finds a link to get those, update this thread.

I guess. Was going by this post:
https://www.facebook.com/SylvanEsso/posts/558348557615846

But with it being so far out, it makes sense that it's not on sale yet. Just don't want to forget to keep checking on it and find out it's sold out already, haha.

Also, just saw that NPR is live streaming Sylvan Esso and tune-yards tonight:
http://www.npr.org/event/music/319137516/tune-yards-live-in-concert

Note that the show starts at 9pm at the 9:30 club, at first I made a mental note that the show was at 9:30pm lol.

the headliner starts at 9:30 if it's not a friday or saturday show, which is awesome if you're a working stiff who has to be up early. and even weekend shows don't require your whole night to be planned around it. on top of that it's an incredibly well run venue with awesome sound

i'll be there tonight, but i probably won't show up til right before tune-yards

Here's the vid of their performance. Questlove was on drums for them. Seemed a bit awkward at first as they were figuring out the timing with a live drummer, but quickly came together for a pretty uniquely cool performance. Good stuff.

I'm surprised by the number of dislikes and negative comments it's getting on YouTube, but whatever. That was huge exposure for them, and they will continue to sell out more and more shows all over the place. They're on the rise and that's awesome.

nobody has ever jokingly made a statement on the internet before

every word typed is to be taken as literally as possible

I don't know what crawled up your fucking ass and died, but you aren't the only motherfucker who can feel a connection to a band. BJ Burton the man who mastered their album turned my girlfriend's sister onto them last year. I've been telling anyone I could about this band for a while and I love the stuff Amelia did with Mountain Man.

Eat a goddamn dick synapse.

and a protip for you: don't act like you're the goddamn father of the band just because you announced to a website a band exists.

You know nothing about what you post parsonsb, but I enjoyed it all the same

The content of my post under the video is the same thing TGL said when Future Islands played their first late night talk show. I found it humorous so I re-posted it since Sylvan Esso just played their first, mocking TGL. What follows is bickering between him and me...it didn't involve you.

But if you still want me to still eat a dick, present it sir!

Naw I actually heard about them in the Hopscotch thread here. By the time I made the thread I was surprised no one else had first.

^^ the comment was carat-ed at you, but i was mocking TGL for some other silly shit he said in another thread.

i can't believe you took the content of it so negatively though...it doesn't make any sense when applied to you.

So I've been listening to "Coffee" whenever Echoes Radio played it, and I'm honestly surprised that Sylvan Esso is from NC rather than, say, England, where most of the good chillout producers are from.

Then again I also listened to a couple of their other songs and they definitely sound American, but then I would have guessed NYC.
