Espers chronology

III is Espers' fourth full-length album.[1] It was released on October 20, 2009.[1] The band (known for bleak and melancholic music) has stated in a press release that they've "attempted to create something that would be perhaps cheery at times, though that mark may have been missed.”[2]

AllMusic's Thom Jurek gave the album a glowing review, concluding that "This band may take their time between releases now, but they get exponentially more sophisticated and adventurous, not only in their composed material, but in their approach to making records."[4]

Uncut's John Mulvey described it as "frequently terrific" but "not quite in the same class as II," its predecessor.[2]

The BBC's David Sheppard gave it a positive review, concluding that "much of this unostentatiously produced album...could have been recorded at any time during the last 40 years and will probably still beguile four decades hence."[7]

Michael Cramer of Dusted Magazine gave it a mixed review, describing it as an awkward hybrid of the band's first two albums: "In opting for a more concise and song-based approach while largely retaining (if in somewhat attenuated form) the production aesthetic of its predecessor, III occupies an uncomfortable middle ground between II and Espers’s debut, and resultantly is a weaker album than either."[8]

Espers ist eine Psychedelic-Folk-Band aus Philadelphia, die der Indie-Szene zugeordnet werden kann, und ging 2002 aus dem Trio um Sänger und Songwriter Greg Weeks, Meg Baird und Brooke Sietinsons hervor. Otto Hauser, Helena Espvall und Chris Smith komplettierten später das Sextett. Der Stil von Espers erinnert stark an den britischen Folk der ausgehenden 1960er Jahre wie auch an den zeitgenössischer Gruppen, beispielsweise . Viele der Bandmitglieder haben ebenso bei Studioaufnahmen anderer Folkmusiker wie Nick Castro und Vashti Bunyan mitgewirkt.

Das nach der Band selbst benannte Debütalbum wurde 2004 von Locust Music veröffentlicht. 2005 folgte „The Weed Tree“, ein Jahr später das dritte Album „Espers II“. Im Oktober 2009 erschien „Espers III“.
