The Berg Sans Nipple

The Berg Sans Nipple - Ghost

What got me excited about the Berg Sans Nipple was 2 things: Shane Aspegren of Lullaby for the Working Class was in it and it was being released on Team Love, a label I'm quite fond of.

What made me fall head over heels for them was this video:

"Along the Quai", released this past Tueaday, is 8 songs that feel very warm and organic despite featuring many computerized sounds. However, it also features soft vocals low in the mix, melodica, trumpet and more. Anyone who is familiar with Aspegren knows his background has always been as a drummer and that's no different here. I'd say the drums stand out the most. At times, both members play percussion and it really does wonders to make the songs stand out. Watch that video, you'll see what I mean.

Also worth seeking out is the vinyl version of this record: It's a double 180 gram vinyl with 2 bonus tracks. Both the cd and lp have a really cool cutout on the cover.
