Sylvan Esso - Sylvan Esso - Released May 13, 2014
Sylvan Esso was not meant to be a band. Rather, Amelia Meath had written a song called “Play It Right” and sung it with her trio Mountain Man. She’d met Nick Sanborn, an electronic producer working under the name Made of Oak, in passing on a shared bill in a small club somewhere.
As 2012 slipped into 2013, Sanborn and Meath reconvened in the unlikely artistic hub of Durham, N.C., a former manufacturing town with cheap rent and good food. Sylvan Esso became a band. MORE INFO HERE
BOBBY - BOBBY - Released June 21, 2011
Limited Edition Clear Green Vinyl 2xLP includes Digital Download Card
Founded by Tom Greenberg during his senior year at Bennington, BOBBY includes fellow classmates Julian Labat, Roby Moulton, Paolo Menuez, Martin Zimmerman and Mountain Man's Molly Erin Sarle. Shortly after graduating, the band all moved into a house together up in Montague, MA, a tiny rural hamlet hidden away in the woods with little more than a post-office and convenience store, strictly for the purpose of putting together an album. Unfettered by the distractions of civilization, and far-removed from their peers, BOBBY gradually took shape in the crucible of isolation. MORE INFO HERE
Mountain Man - Made The Harbor - Released July 10, 2010
The music of Mountain Man (aka Molly Erin Sarle, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig and Amelia Randall Meath) is nestled in the tradition of American folk, but shoots like diamond dust out of that nest into the high, wide atmosphere. Their songs are shaped by three searching voices, encompassing harmonies and a shared belief in and love of the world. MORE INFO HERE
