E S S, “Sugar Engine”

E S S the new project from Sacramento-based musician Jesse Philips, who's previous bands include Ellie Fortune and playing in Appetite. A rareity in a city known for weirdo-folk, sun-splashed surf-pop and math-rock, E S S breathes some of the doom lingering since Chelsea Wolfe's departure for LA.

On "Sugar Engine" E S S strip down to Phillips behind the mic and guitarist Karlos Ayala. It's a slow and loud soliloquy that leaves little hope among the heavy reverberations.
