sample the album:
"Established in 2007, Roil play their own original style of jazz-inspired improvised music, and have released 3 albums thus far: Meaning (2009) on Australian label, Rufus, Frost Frost (2011) on uk label, Bo'weavil Recordings & Raft Of The Meadows (2014) on Lithuanian label NoBusiness records.
Their music draws upon a varied pallet; at times it comes close to free jazz, at other times to experimental improvisation, while also referencing other styles such as minimalism, reductionism and ambient music. A Roil piece incorporates aspects of textural improvisation, bringing extended techniques to bear on a collective sound world; while also being melodic and conventionally rhythmic. Bringing together the abstract and the figurative."-Roil
