The 2015/1967 Countdown - 10/07/2016 Update

Today, we return to our 2015 Coachella Starters mix, and take a listen to an unexpected 2014 indie hit that turned an off-the-cuff side project into one of the must-see artists of the 2015 Coachella festival.

When they first started collaborating, the sly, sexy, late-night electro-pop presented in Sylvan Esso's 2014 self-titled debut couldn't have been more of a departure for the Durham, North Carolina duo of Appalachian indie-folk singer/Mountain Man member Amelia Meath and electronic producer/Megafaun bassist Nick Sandborn, but the album's relaxed vibes and clever lyrics took hold with the public.

Their debut now stands as the most successful endeavor of either artist's career, due in no large part to the runaway indie success of this single here, the coy, Tommy James-referencing Coffee.
