The Necks
Three

New work from the always fascinating and increasingly legendary Australian trio the Necks. Now existing for an incredible 33 years with exactly the same line up, the band blend piano, drums and bass into a cathartic improvised sound that is like longform improvised minimalist jazz... but much more interesting than I've made that sound. Three is their first album since they performed 135 feet underground at a Polish salt mine.

The Necks
Mindset

Releasing sixteen albums is an achievement in itself. What’s impressive about Mindset, the latest soiree into improvised musical from those wonderful Australians The Necks, is that it shows that the band are still looking to expand their sound more than 25 years after they kicked things off. The two lengthy piano-bass-drum swells that each make up a side of Mindset draw from Sun Ra, Chick Corea, Alice Coltrane and so much more without ever sounding much like any of them.

Tony Buck & Massimo Pupillo
Time Being

Tony Buck and Massimo Pupillo come from fairly different corners of the free-improvised music world, with Buck’s group The Necks famed for their tranquil ecstacy and Pupillo’s group Zu known for their metallic brutality. This duo record finds them carving out some new territory of their own, with ambience, noise and electronics coalescing into some pretty vivid scenes. Time Being is released by Trost.

The Necks
Body

You know how the Necks do. Wake up. Get the coffee on. Simultaneously improvise instrumental gold. Another day. The wonderful and surprisingly dense Unfold was their last record and it came out on LP; now in typical Necks fashion they're releasing a CD only called Body, relying on the usual and ever-so trusty combination of piano, bass and drums -- though percussionist Tony Buck is said to really go out on a limb with some guitar excursions on this one.
