the essex green

Responsible for a fair amount of swooning and feinting around these parts since first veering into our listening orbit, alas we still can’t put our hands or indeed, eyes to the press email which accompanied it. Anyhow, this be the Essex Green who, if I recall rightly, often figured in these pages many years ago. This their latest entitled ‘Sloane Ranger’ comes pulled from an imminent set for Merge due the end of the month and going by the title ‘Hardly Electronic’. In all honesty, I’ve not heard anything vaguely coming close to contesting this one’s contention for the award of being the sound of summer, at once attractively slick, effervescent, deftly daubed in the just the right amount of lysergic toning that’s all served with the subtlest sly kick and then phrased with a homely yet altogether familiar 50’s bubble grooving that literally beams feel good at each passing riff strut.
