The Essex Green

Today... some really good indie pop that you might have heard before. The Essex Green is primarily Sasha Bell, Jeff Baron and Chris Ziter with added musicians Mike Barret and Tim Barnes. This 3 (or 5) piece is from Brooklyn, New York. They've been around since 1997 and have released several singles and EPs on various smaller record labels. They are now signed to the Merge Records label (one of my faves) and have a third full length release in Cannibal Sea available as of last month.

The Essex Green website doesn't offer much in the way of information besides tour dates and brief news so check out their MySpace page to hear and read more. Speaking of tours, they just got back from finishing a European one with The Shout Out Louds. The U.S. tour begins tonight 4/27 in Lexington, Kentucky. They will be in Chicago on Friday also. It's too far of a drive either way for me. Damn!!
