And the kicker is, they provide all their releases for free on the net. You can download the entire album guilt free, and then if you like it, buy a hard copy. I hope they're doing well; I intend to buy this and perhaps a few others as well.
Anyhow, Nest was the first artist I investigated from Serein. The main instrument is a piano, and each track has it augmented by another sound - a plucked mandolin, perhaps, or strings, or a distant train's whistle, or things less identifiable. It's stark, beautiful, and although they're not alone in the genre, Nest produces a singular sound which I have been coming back to for weeks now. It's short: a 26-minute EP, but it's a comfortable length and now that I consider it a unit I wouldn't want any more or less of it. Give it a listen, and check out Serein and their other acts.
Here's "Cad Goddeu," by Nest. If you like it, check out the rest on Serein's site.
