Come Away With ESG by ESG

Discovered at a talent contest, ESG were the group of New York sisters who took soul and funk and stripped everything away so you were left with spindly and skeletal compositions heavy on the bass and minimal guitar. Factory Records saw the power in them and were involved in its initial release with legendary producer Martin Hannett doing some exploratory recordings with the band. The album has passed into legend being an influence on house and hip-hop and being sampled all over the place.

7/10 Jack 27th June 2015

I thought Luscious Jackson was interesting when I first heard it. And then I heard the band ESG for the first time. It begs the question why it takes so long to be exposed to foundational popular music, but when you find something for yourself for the first time it doesn't matter how long it took, you're just glad to have discovered it. Is this album that good? Maybe, I'll leave you to judge for yourself. But it is pretty good, and if you have never heard ESG before, it's better than pretty good.
