Connecting to the fabric of the species with Sylvan Esso

Music. By listening to it you feel heard.

If you have this experience or this emotional state that you’re in and then you listen to a piece of music that describes that back to you, you feel connected, you feel connected to the fabric of our species.

— Nick Sanborn of Sylvan Esso

The drum beat is as close to the heart beat as you can get, and when you are all listening to a song together your bodies slow down in the same way. It’s a great community builder.

— Amelia Meath of Sylvan Esso


I love these two and the music they make together. They’ve been a source of buoyancy during these times we’re in.

Here’s Sylvan Esso connecting us to the fabric of the species with a sublime version of Gillian Welch’s “Everything Is Free”. Two great musical partnerships come together in this song.
