From musical roots in the blues to being home of one of indie rock's biggest labels, Durham is yet again piercing the national and international consciousness with a new act - Sylvan Esso. The duo, proudly calling Durham home, is getting play around the world, and accolades to boot.
Today, National Public Radio named the band's eponymous release to NPR Music's 25 Favorite Albums of 2014 (So Far), and featured the band earlier in the year with a review, and a post which calls "Coffee," the song that has gotten so much play and attention, "one of the year's best." Listen to it and watch the video, part of which was shot in Durham, here.
