Today, The Nest are proud to present their new album SAYWEENJOY on Albumlabel. The album was recorded in one weekend by musicians Christoph Clöser, Thomas Mahmoud, Gerald Mandl and Tycho Schottelius at Neukölln Studios in Cologne-Mülheim, and mixed a few weeks later at Ministerium in Berlin. Whereas the music on their previous album Music for Drivers came across as much more fragmented and fractured, the new album features skillfully arranged songs that lie somewhere between contemporary electronics, musique concrète and jazz. The album’s language is warm, cynical, upbeat, cold, dark, claustrophobic, neurotic and unpredictable, all at once in the spirit of our times, yet full of humor. It is a musical language that knows no fear or boundaries. The vocals and the singing support the rhythms more than the musical phrases and melodies. They often have a sample-like quality in dialogue with the saxophone, which embodies the actual lead vocals and melody of the music, giving it a soul. SAYWEENJOY is more danceable than John Zorn, but clunkier than Madonna.
Today, enjoy the music video to the song “Kairos” which is just as experimental and the musical.
