    City Slang welcomes Cristobal And The Sea!

    Sep 29, 2014

    City Slang is extremely excited to announce the signing of London-based Cristobal And The Sea; a proper European union of a band, if there ever was one. The quartet hail from four corners of our diverse continent. They are: Alejandro Romero from Spain (bass/vox), João Seixas from Portugal (guitar/vox), Leïla Séguin from Corsica/France (flute/vox) and Josh Oldershaw from old Blighty (drums).

    Within this melting pot of dreamy tropicalia there are notes of their southern Mediterranean culture and a Brazilian bossa nova feel in João’s guitar style, all underpinned by a beat-generation vibe that seeps into all their songs. All perfectly captured on this debut by Brooklyn producer, Rusty Santos (Animal Collective, Vashti Bunyan, Grizzy Bear). More after the jump, but first, listen to "My Love (Ay Ay Ay)"

Sylvan Esso

SLANG50067 | SLANG50067LP | SLANG50067

Sylvan Esso was not meant to be a band. Rather, Amelia Meath had written a song called “Play It Right” and sung it with her trio Mountain Man. She’d met Nick Sanborn, an electronic producer working under the name Made of Oak, in passing on a shared bill in a small club somewhere. She asked him to scramble it, to render her work his way. He did the obligatory remix, but he sensed  […] READ ON
