Esben & the Witch @ Mercury Lounge, 3/22/2013
Icy UK goths Esben and the Witch brought an arsenal of effects pedals and a new album's worth of material to NYC over the weekend, as part of their tour with Heliotropes. The first of two shows here happened at Mercury Lounge on Friday (3/22). The band's permafrost veneer melts a little live, with their pounding rhythm second pushed to the fore more than on their records (like the just-released Wash The Sins Not Only The Face).
