For the past week, Sylvan Esso has been releasing a series of videos that make up their Echo Mountain Sessions Visual EP via NPR. The band talked to Bob Boilen at All Songs Considered to chat about the unique collaborations involved and the making of the EP.  Today, NPR posted the final video for their popular single "Radio" You can watch it HERE.

In April 2017 Sylvan Esso assembled a live band comprised of their close friends and collaborators- members of Mountain Man, Wye Oak, The Dead Tongues, The Mountain Goats and Megafaun- to arrange and record full-band versions of songs from their new album What Now. The band took this experiment to Echo Mountain Studios, located in the mountains of North Carolina, and cut five songs live in one day. The result, the Echo Mountain Sessions visual EP, is a testament to the New York Times’ declaration that “Sylvan Esso Keeps Electronic Pop Human”. These bold re-imaginations from the band’s celebrated sophomore album, What Now, highlight Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn’s songwriting craft and the boundlessly talented North Carolina musical community from which they hail. Never ones to rest, Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn continue to push themselves and expand on what Sylvan Esso can be. The Echo Mountain Sessions visual EP was released today and the band has also created a limited edition vinyl release available exclusively HERE.

What Now was released in April to widespread critical acclaim, with Variety proclaiming it “a sophomore effort that sees them progressing as far in one album as most groups do in two or three.“ They debuted their pulse-thumping single on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and reached #1 on Sirius AltNation this week.  What Now has already amassed 40 Million streams globally (5 times their debut album at the same point), currently averaging 1 Million streams per week + 1.5 Million monthly listeners on Spotify alone.   The album debuted at #3 on the Alternative charts, positioning it well within the Billboard Top 200.  What Now has racked up 60,000 albums sold (SEA) worldwide, in just 90 days.

The band just played an incredible show at a packed Prospect Park Bandshell for Celebrate Brooklyn. They'll continue on next week with shows at Lollapalooza and a long list of mostly sold out headlining dates. They'll also launch their own one day festival at Shakori Hills in North Carolina, playing with friends like Tune-Yards, Wye Oak, Helado Negro, Well$. See all tour dates below.
