This is the third full-length album from this Brooklyn collective, The Essex Green. Featuring songs that draw on themes on travel, exploration and the desire for a quiet niche amid the pressures of big city living. Listening to CANNIBAL SEA is like opening a songbook of classic pop. The twelve songs incorporate country-rock traces the Byrds, the Greenwich Village balladry of Fred Neill and the acoustic pop harmonizing of the Mamas and the Papas. Add the pure pop perfection of the Monkees and mix with modern traces of the Shins, the Hidden Cameras and Jens Lekman and you have a recipe for a sound that timeless without being purely retro.
