Sylvan Esso – “H.S.K.T. (Hercules & Love Affair Boom Mix)”
Sylvan Esso’s self-titled 2014 debut is a truly enjoyable album, but it’s also, pretty clearly, the work of a couple of indie-folk dweebs playing around with dance and pop idioms. In fact, that’s maybe the most endearing thing about it. Still, it’s interesting to hear what happens when someone who comes from a dance-music perspective gets ahold of one of their tracks. Hercules & Love Affair mastermind Andy Butler is one such person, and he’s now turned Sylvan Esso’s “H.S.K.T.” — the one about Miley Cyrus — into a seven-minute deep house workout. Listen to it below.
