"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."
