Embed and breakfast man: Esser

How better to spend some time this weekend than a spot of looking at Esser? The BBC sum up young Ben up as "coming from Essex with a Flock Of Seagulls haircut", which seems to sell short Esser's talent and, come to that, Mike Score's adventures in backcombing.

Esser have been turning up in all the right places - Glastonbury, Lollapolooza, Marc Riley's imperial 6Music show - and a few wrong ones, like in front of the crowd waiting for Kaiser Chiefs to come on.

Just the one album so far, but it's pretty darn good. If you really want to cram it into a pointless soundbite, forget the haircut and try this as a description: Le Roux. Or, if your schoolboy French has let you down, a male counterpoint to what La Roux does.

Let's get cracking with Headlock:

Braveface - the album
Braveface - the mp3s

Harder, better, further, Esser
Esser Hq - official site
Esser MySpace
Esser Last FM
Esser Spotify
Esser on
Esser Wikipedia (as yet, only a stub - the Wikipedia equivalent of playing the Falcon)

More Esser over the coming hours
Work It Out - Bandstand Busking performance
