Espers - Espers (2003)

A phenomenal debut album of dark, far-out, but polished psych folk. I saw Espers right after this album came out (my sister's band opened for them) at a small restaurant/venue in Baltimore and to this day it remains one of the most mesmerizing sets I've witnessed. I'm including in the download "Under the Waterfall", the b-side to the "Riding" single, because it's really good.

Track listing:
1. Flowery Noontide
2. Meadow
3. Riding
4. Voices
5. Hearts and Daggers
6. Byss and Abyss
7. Daughter
8. Travel Mountains

Between your red and golden skin
Most innocently

  1. Espers are just totally freakin' mind blowing. Marianne Faithfull covered their song Children of Stone. It's on youtube - amazing. My understanding is that Greg Weeks got sick of the musicians life, and became a high school teacher in philly. Meg moved to the SF Bay area. The rest are "around".
