The Essex Green returned this year with Hardly Electronic via Merge Records, their first album in 12 years. Their tour in support of the record brought them to Brooklyn on August 4 for a performance at the Knitting Factory.

Our photographer Taryn Alper was there to capture shots from their performance, as well as openers Pale Lights and Adeline Hotel.
