The Necks 16th release layers polyrhythmic material to form seething blocks of sound, in two long pieces, one more stripped back to the live trio, the other featuring multiple strata of swirling Hammonds, noise-guitar and electronics.

Necks, The: Mindset [VINYL] (Recommended Records)
Label: Recommended Records    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Always different. Here the Necks resolutely layer polyrhythmic material to form seething blocks of sound - in two long pieces, one more stripped back to the live trio, the other featuring multiple strata of swirling Hammonds, noise-guitar and electronics. It's their 16th release in their 24th year as a band and amazingly they are still finding new things to do."-Chris Cutler, Recommended Records

Drummer and percussionist Tony Buck writes: "Mindset shares some elements in common with our previous album Silverwater [2009], mostly in some mixing approaches and rhythmic devices - a reflection of our ongoing fascination with polymetric material and varying simultaneous pulses... but it's a whole other thing again, and the two tracks are very different from one another - "Rum Jungle" captures the live approach of the piano, bass, and drum trio a lot more, while "Daylights" features a bed of electronics and little sounds that slowly converge, coalescing into a multi-layered, multi-tempo, swirling soundscape."
