Sylvan Esso Announce Split 7″ With Flock Of Dimes

Earlier this week, The A.V. Club shared video of Sylvan Esso covering Gillian Welch’s “Everything Is Free” for their popular Undercover series. The performance featured tour mate Flock of Dimes, aka Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak. Today, Undercover premiered Flock of Dimes’ cover of Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” backed by Nick and Amelia of Sylvan Esso.  This session took place during the first week of a month-long tour where the trio rode together and returned home with a deeper respect and more meaningful friendship than they could have imagined. To commemorate the tour and preserve the remarkable performances, Partisan Records is releasing a split 7” of the covers on November 27th. In the meantime, head over to the A.V. Club and watch both sessions, they are both truly outstanding renditions.
