Nesey Gallons

There is something intriguingly enigmatic about this guy, but what is clear is that he's connected to the Elephant Six crew in Athens, GA, and that he'll be part of the stupendous "Holiday Surprise" Tour coming up

The Music Tapes mastermind Julian Koster is definitely involved somehow; that singing saw in "Aurora Borealis" is his and so is the house in which the videos were shot.

The two songs below are pretty stellar and take me right back to 1996 or so...

"Aurora Borealis"


"There Won't Be Any Crows"


From Nesey himself:
The little films were shot last spring at julian’s house in the Calendar Islands. We could only film things indoors or out of windows as the white beard blazes up in direct sunlight, this therefore is the only reason you do not see the sea but we are surrounded by all of it.

For those who speculate or believe that nesey gallons & julian are all the same things, they’re not, we have simply been friends for a long lungy time now, and julian was naturally quite pleased to contribute to a love song about the aurora borealis.

These two songs are from nesey’s frothcoming new record ‘eyes & eyes & eyes ago’ recorded last winter. I say frothcoming but that is a hopeful word indeed as no one has yet offered to put it out. There may be a self-released 7 inch record once funds become available!
