Art of the Cover - Sylvan Esso's "Coffee" (2014)

Nice minimalist artwork adorns this great release by American electronic / indie folk supergroup Sylvan Esso.

The band consists of singer Amelia Meath (of Mountain Man) and producer Nick Sanborn (of Megafaun).

"Coffee" was composed by Meath and Sanborn with Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich.

Meath's powerful voice is front and center, unjoined by fellow harmonizers as it is in her folk group, Mountain Man. Sanborn, who plays bass in the genre-destroying Megafaun, creates intricate, pulsing grooves for Meath's voice to inhabit. 

Coffee/Dress is the follow up to the critically acclaimed Hey Mami/Play it Right. 

The release also features acapella and instrumental versions of each song.

Their debut album Sylvan Esso has received glowing reviews from critics.

Tom Breihan of Stereogum called the album "a breezy, joyous piece of work", as well as selecting it as an Album of the Week.
