The Berg Sans Nipple

The Berg Sans Nipple is a duo from Paris, France consisting of Lori Sean Berg and Shane Aspegren. From what I read, both of these artists have extensive musical backrounds heavily influenced by organic/electronic percussion. They enlist the assistance of some musical friends for the purpose of recording and feature various vocal talents often. Sean is a native of France while Shane is actually from Nebraska (yes that Nebraska) here in the States. The two met while working on the soundtrack of a short film titled Marie-Madeleine in 2002 and have several singles, EPs and projects as a result of their travels. Sometimes, the most interesting thing about any given musician can be the intruments they utilize. Below are the BSN stats for you:

Shane Aspegren: drum set, percussion, words, voice, programming, melodica, kalimba, glockenspiel, keyboards, broken traynor and various pedals, machines

Lori Sean Berg: electric and acoustic piano, portable bass piano,synthesizers, trumpet, glockenspiel, assdrum and other percussion, voice, amps and various pedals, machines

Oh (wait wait...) there is a mystery here. Of course I'm making something out of nothing but it might give you an idea of what we can't figure out when trying to track down information for the music we attempt to feature. On the website of the band's label Team Love Records there is a downloadable track titled Mystic Song from the upcoming January 27 release Along The Quai. Does it sound familiar? Yes it is the song we have featured here today. If you then visit the BSN Myspace Page and listen to the same track title it is a completely different song. Along The Quai is the name of the new CD but is also listed as as song #6 in the lineup. I'm making a big guess here, but will have to side with what is listed on the mp3 file. It probably could be any song but for this brief moment we will enjoy it regardless of title. All the more reason to look forward to the release date of January 27, 2007.
