Sylvan Esso – “Kick Jump Twist”

Sylvan Esso returned with a single called “Radio” this year, one of our favorites of the week when it dropped. Now the North Carolina electronic folk-pop duo have delivered the B-side, a shifty and understated track called “Kick Jump Twist.” It reminds me of the post-IDM “laptop pop” of the late ’90s and early aughts, and it sounds tremendous this morning. Listen below.

The “Radio” b/w “Kick Jump Twist” 12″ single is out today and available here. Presumably the follow-up to 2014’s self-titled debut is coming next year, but the band hasn’t announced it yet.
