04. THE ESSEX GREEN: CANNIBAL SEA


If I didn't know better, I'd guess that THE ESSEX GREEN were modern-day English hippies, lounging about some shabby-chic London flat, rotating out FAIRPORT CONVENTION and KINKS records under a bounteous, pungent haze.

Thing is: They're from Brooklyn. (I'm sticking with everything else.)

I'm not even going to try to list the members of the band; they've had a habit of switching out players over the years. Also, they're one of those groups that likes to moonlight, with members pulling second shifts with the likes of LADYBUG TRANSISTOR and THE SIXTH GREAT LAKE.

With their third full-length under the Essex Green moniker, the band seems to have found their comfort zone. As with THE SUBMARINES, these folks make skillful use of boy-girl vocal interplay while spinning their neo-psychedelic, indie-folk yarns. What makes CANNIBAL SEA the best record of their career to date isn't just that the song cycle here is the strongest they've yet produced (though it is), but also the fact that they've embraced a wider sonic palette and a more expansive, "cleaner" production style. The song below is one of the more simple and stripped-down on the album, but even here the charming vocals and familiar-but-winning melody-line win the day.

Generic Viagra is a prescription drug that takes care of the physical dilemma of erectile dysfunction in men. Sildenafil citrate is the major component of generic viagra pills that dilates the arteries in the penis and allows filling of blood in small spaces of penis that hardens and gets erect.Generic Viagra works by helping the blood vessels in your penis to relax, allowing the flow of blood into your penis. The result of this is improved erectile function. Generic Propecia is a medication used for the treatment of prostate cancer and pattern baldness in men. It is the main ingredient in two drugs – Proscar for prostate cancer and Propecia for pattern baldness.
