I've been to maybe 100 shows at Crescent Ballroom
, yet I've never seen the place so packed for an opener. Someone screamed, "We're here for you," so apparently Sylvan Esso
has some fans in town. Their glockenspiel samples and soft, pitter-patter vocals made Esso feel like a modern version of Portishead, except Beth Gibbons uses real fucking drums. Take some notes, Esso. Read the full review of tUnE-yArDs at Crescent Ballroom by Troy Farah here.
