Manhattan Project (by Jesse Payne) Camera lens, medicine I hope I float I’m a skipping stone When the time comes our stomach’s choke Momentum stops or slows Cover and Code your secrets out don’t you know Diplomatic control Unconditional post-war Dixie cups and magazines bloodshot eyes on dramamine We’ll congregate like uniform marching home Cover and Code your secrets out don’t you know Diplomatic control Unconditional post-war Shake it off your shoulder take it like a soldier you better take it like a soldier

Scripting Carolina Written by: Jesse Payne Overcoats and transit Lashes and tactics The steady shake The gaps of transaction Echo reaction I'm fearful of love I'll lean until I rise Scripting Carolina Our future is an antique We will radiate The steady shake Garlands tangle your groove so calm My coral vine I hold you shy I'll lean until I rise Scripting Carolina

Yards Of Paint (by Jesse Payne) Driveways tear unconscious walls the fence will sharply sway unstable yards of paint my clockwise spring Was narrowed by the muzzle’s fit the fractions of a breeze branches holding leaves with unswept breath The doctor said don’t reset the screen it becomes general you know Campaigns bear on skinned up knees these military halls ration out our thoughts with retro-film Like mountains under snow the pines will come and go Where the ocean meets the old The doctor said don’t reset the screen it becomes general you know I want you to grow as if your still the doctor says it becomes general The doctor said, “ I want you to grow” “it becomes general, you know”

Wes Anderson Written by: Jesse Payne You, I know Seven letter draw for your double word score And me here Sittin' on a porch with a cat and a smoke You know it's easy being low In someone else's home Tennis elbow painting sofas With our remote in hand we sever the air CNN, cooking in our barefeet Listenin' to talkin' heads sayin' that we don't care You touch the keys I'll keep the beat Like sweeping up cigarettes from the night before New clothes burning in the backyard Dryin' out all our jokes, crouched behind open doors You, I know Seven letter draw for your double word score And me here Sittin' on a porch with a cat and a smoke You know it's easy being low In someone else's home We love songs in the key on "C" Hummin' all the words we know, we sing the ones we don't Boxes folded with our laundry Flippin' through these satellites, wonderin' why there's nothin' on the wall Hangin' faces tied to levels Our nails hammer, swing, holes in the wall Fillin' up closests with our cameras We'll recharge batteries we'll sharpen up our claws You, I know Seven letter draw for your double word score And me here Sittin' on a porch with a cat and a smoke You know it's easy being low In someone else's home

My Autumn Chair (by Jesse Payne) I know I sold you out pushed by a watch all rivers swing until the harvest drought under the crest of canvas heights You were my autumn chair calm and creakin' If our hands could heal would you golden the fall to shoulder the air or turn on your brightest wheel hollowed by truth your dust needs room You were my autumn chair calm and creakin' You were my autumn chair calm and creakin'

Heavy Cotton Hands Written by: Jesse Payne Heavy Cotton Hands (by Jesse Payne) Cautious wheels strongbox stove shallow creek drown my bones Yeah we'll try to keep the lids closed Yeah we'll try to keep the lids closed A crippled roof leaks the swell on humble eyes empty shelf A glass embrace behind your couch falls we tell ourselves Heavy cotton hands hold us Yeah we'll try to keep the lids closed Yeah we'll try to keep the lids closed Heavy cotton hands hold us

about

Nesting is nature returning to its natural state. A homecoming. Through particles of equation, Jesse Payne and the talented group of musicians and engineers working with him have sculpted an image of what nesting may sound like. The sound of strategic calmness through its progression towards the unconditional post-war is an audio-painting of the notion, “through chaos, peace is inevitable.” The theory that the limbs of cycle spin continuously towards rehabilitation of dirt and bone provide the album with its contagious tendency for repeated listening.
Jesse Payne stems from a soil deep in the Southeastern region of the United States. He nests within scenic views of trees and mountains blending into valleys of skyscrapers and barns. Canvas for his yellow shade of timeless polaroids transposing over lake and swing suggests an inheritance of owls and their nocturnal solitude. His sound and sight each born from a landscape of heavy cotton hands and autumn chairs.
Habitation of the past four years has given three previous releases from Jesse Payne. The first being a collection of songs entitled, “Humming the Tunes of Luxury” released on November 2, 2004. Shortly after, Payne released his follow-up EP, “Ghosts in Mirrors” in 2005. During the next two years he found himself touring the eastern coastal region as far north as Boston and as far west as Chicago. Upon returning to his home in early 2007, Jesse Payne delivered the EP, “Songs from Beyond the Leaves,” which earned him a spot in The Big Takeover’s Top 40, alongside Band of Horses, Death Cab For Cutie, and Willie Nelson. His song, ‘Thief Among Us,’ also found its way on national compilations that included artists such as Ryan Adams and Sondre Lerche.
His latest LP (Nesting) being released on November 09, 2010 has brought with it, not only his past story but a familiar feeling embedded into unfamiliar sound. Jesse Payne’s haunting melodies breathe across untraditional instrumentation and military rhythm of a mathematical mind.
Jesse Payne’s team of sonic painters include optical biologist Mason Boyd, mental dendrologist Nick Timkovich, audio botanist and wave manipulator Mike Creager, and geopolitical environmentalist Noel Johnson of the renowned musical group, The White Oaks.
“Nesting” is an album that asks to be enjoyed with headphones and limited illumination.
