The Brothers Nylon are one of those phenomena in which one wants to scream out loud: "THANK YOU INTERNET". The formation consists of the brothers Michael and Nick Rufolo from New York and the London-based Shawn Lee, known through his soundtracks for ﬁlm and video games, as well as numerous record releases on labels like BBE, Ubiquity, Wall of Sound, Talkin Loud and some others. He can now boast a catalog of over 30 publications.But what is so special about this formation, how can you describe or classify the band's sound?
One enters a unique world, shaped and brought to life by three musical individuals who serve plentiful from the musical ingredients shelf. The result is a superb mixture of semi- famous riffs, Library Records, dirty funk tracks, obscure records for inducted vinyl nerds and ﬂea market diggers. Perhaps the best description is “multi instrumental big band multitrack madness”. Recorded in New York by the brothers Rufolo using a historical tape machine and then sent across the ocean to Shawn Lee to be developed and enriched, then back to New York and so on and so forth. If there are bonus miles for e-mails, this intercontinental collaboration has certainly entitled to the golden Membership. In addition to the musical complexity, the project is mainly supported by his humor which would be a Beastie Boys side project as well as a Prince Paul publication. There are all imaginable and unimaginable topics . The range from an ode to the clearly
ambiguous All Man Milk on musical bows / disrespects regarding the fantasy series Game Of Thrones to the various reasons for visiting San Francisco or the declaration of couscous way of life.
10 Tracks, 10 videos, once in a lifetime experience. Absolutely thrilling collaboration with Shawn and the Rufolo Brothers!
