Sylvan Esso || Performing ‘Wolf’ Live With Megafaun, Lambchop ++ more on NPR

“Last fall, Sylvan Esso’s Nick Sanborn was commissioned by Duke University and Alverno University in Milwaukee to put together a special concert with some of his favorite artists and collaborators. The result was a two-night stand that featured Sanborn and Sylvan Esso singer Amelia Meath performing alongside members of Sanborn’s other band, Megafaun and Meath’s former band, Mountain Man, as well as the group Field Report and Lambchop’s William Tyler. Together they shared mostly acoustic versions of a number of Sylvan Esso songs, including this cut from the band’s self-titled, debut record, “Wolf.”

Shot in black and white, it’s a surprisingly intimate and arresting arrangement of a song originally scored with throbbing electronics.”
