Weston Minissali lent his synth-playing talents to Cloud Becomes Your Hand, one of our 2014 Band To Watch picks. Since then, he’s started a new project composing songs under the name Erica Eso. Following his first album under the pseudonym, 2019, Minissali is back this month with an album for NNA Tapes called 129 Dreamless GMG.
Erica Eso has shared a couple previews from the forthcoming with “Gun-Metal Grey” and “Love Gun,” and today we’re premiering the album’s closer, “House That’s Always Burning.” The track features Angelica B of Body Language and at the chorus, her melody provides the anchor meant to highlight rather than ground the rest of the microtonal frenzy.
Listen below, where you can also stream “Gun-Metal Grey” and “Love Gun.”
