OK – maybe that headline was a little much. But take a look at the follow-up to Esser's brilliant single "Headlock" called "Satisfied". Frustrated Esser can't please his lady at all – poor guy. In the end she decides to eat him. Nice! As Nelly Furtado would say – "She's a maneater".
I have to say, following Arjan's lovely coverage of Esser, I am more and more interested in him. It's hard not to compare him to Beck, so I will – and that's not a bad thing. To be able to intertwine unusual beats, unique vocals and songs that please the pop-loving ear isn't an easy job at all. Esser does it well.
Esser is also playing a few shows in London with Lykke Li at the end of the month. Now there is a show that I can't miss. Off to find tickets now.
