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.
