More Info

"So As is Birds Build Nests Undergrounds first studio album after three years. It features four songs/compositions created exclusively with turntables and prepared vinyl records. The first of them, 'Sintordin,' is BBNUs attempt to add something to the jazz from hell niche. And the idea of clashing marching bands... 'Ossifying Tongues' started, as the name implies, as a sonic description of the ossification of the mouth: the human voice material was slowly changing into white rhythmic and repetitive skeletons. However, over the years, the song has changed into a different kind of a monster and can be read as a comment on BBNUs industrial/ambient past. 'Axe Loop' is a rock song intro, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, instrumental break, chorus somehow it is sixteen minutes long after the band decided to leave out one verse. And finally there is 'Smoking Sun', a short interpretation of the bands long-lost loop. New Romance meets clarinets on a nicely decorated dissecting table with some flowers in the pot. The fifth is a video track a 10 minute part of BBNUs performance from the autumn 2011, the day Freddie Mercury died. Martin Jezek shows his skills of 16mm improvisation here while Petr Ferenc and Michael Brunclk are locked in their favourite groove. The release arrives in a digipak and is limited. It is joint-released by BBNU's own Love Nest imprint." [label info]
