The name Nesey Gallons may not ring a bell, but if you’re a fan of the Athens, Georgia based music collective known as Elephant 6, you’ve surely heard his styles and sounds before — he is best known for his production work on various Elephant 6-affiliated projects, including recent albums by The Music Tapes and Julian Koster, as well as the forthcoming release by The Circulatory System.
But Gallons has yet to release his very own studio effort. Well, yet. That will change on September 8th, when the Maine native will unveil his debut LP, Eyes & Eyes & Eyes Ago, on personal imprint, Hurrah for Karamazov. Recorded throughout 2006 and 2007, the effort features material performed, arranged, and recorded by Gallons himself and is said to exhibit “largely acoustic songs” combined with “Gallons trademark flourishes of eccentric instrumentation and recorded sound, creating an otherworldly vibe that complements the recordings uncanny melodies and haunting lyrics.”
Of course, no Elephant 6 related released- wouldn’t be without a few guest appearances by fellow Elephant 6 members. In the case of Eyes & Eyes & Eyes Ago, Gallons was joined by accordianista/multi-instrumentalist Sarah Moran and The Music Tapes Julian Koster, formerly of Neutral Milk Hotel.
Gallons plans to support the release with a east coast tour this fall.
