Sloane Ranger - The Essex Green

from the album Hardly Electronic (2018)

The Essex Green are a Brooklyn band who released a series of little known - but wildly tasty - albums back in the early 00s.  In 2006, they decided to take a break from music to pursue other interests.

Twelve years later, they are back with Hardly Electronic, one of the absolute best records of 2018.

The lead track on the album, Sloane Ranger, offers a beat, lyrics, and horn arrangement reminiscent of early 70s British folk-pop juxtaposed against a "summer single" vibe of early 80s new music keyboards and call-response vocals arrangements.  The result is vintage, fresh, and fun - all at the same time.

This is the perfect tune for driving on the Robert Moses Causeway or dancing in your underpants!
