Artist: The Necks Album: Unfold Genre: Experimental, Avant-Garde, Ambient Origin: Australia Released: 2017 Quality: mp3, 320 kbps Tracklist: Rise (15:34) Overhear (16:18) Blue Mountain (20:59) Timepiece (21:47) DOWNLOAD ALBUM The Necks have never been much for tracklists. With some early and not always impressive exceptions near the dawn of the group's almost three-decade career, the improvisational Australian trio has preferred to go the distance in one, perhaps two extended takes.

But Unfold ’s unconventional format forces the Necks to condense its typical approach, to push and pull all the usual .

But Unfold ’s unconventional format forces the Necks to condense its typical approach, to push and pull all the usual peaks, valleys, and arcs into more manageable spans. Everything speeds up just a bit. With that, by the end of the first two minutes of Blue Mountain, the bass, drums, piano, and organ are already intertwined and active. Buck’s distended drum rolls ricochet between layers of blue piano fragments and organ peals. Is Unfold the trio’s first album for our ever-shortening attention spans, at least since their salad days of placid bop in the late ’80s? Turns out, not at all: The Necks’ newfound density is intoxicating. The ideas fly by in a way they never have with this band.

Album · 2017 · 4 Songs. Listen on Apple Music. The experimental trio stretch their brilliance across two albums.

As we northern Canadians have finally stopped shoveling and started mowing our lawns after another long and dark winter, one can hear summer music blasting our of cars still riding on snow tires out of fear of a relapse. I stumbled on that memory as I was driving to work and realized that I had been playing Unfold by Australian heavyweights The Necks for quite some time now and was becoming the soundtrack of this summer, albeit by choice this time.

Ideologic Organ is proud to present the brand-new recordings from The Necks, the legendary Australian trio who excel in bypassing musical cliche whilst exploring and extending the practices embedded within improvisation, jazz, post rock, ambient, minimal, and textural, ‘sound based’ music. The latest document from this long-running ensemble, Unfold, presents itself as a double LP, with four side-length tracks. A deliberate absence of numbered sides hands a substantial swatch of participation over to the listener, allowing her to navigate his own path through the soundscape at hand.

On Unfold, they’ve wondered aloud if the spell of their long-form magic works when stunted by the limitations of physical media and shuffled by the will of the listener. 80. It’s different, daring, and, fortunately for the trio’s fans, effective.

Each piece is organized around a theme, favoring atmosphere and texture over
melody, groove, or fireworks, leaving us unable to fetishize any individual
element as if it could be detached from the whole and turned into a hummable
key hook. As ever with free-improv records, the level of control is
remarkable. Even if there is a bit of studio trickery here and there
(overdubbing, reverb, synths), what you have to listen out for is how each
individual plays in the absolute present — it’s not about some silly New Age
idea about “living in the moment,” it’s about producing something that can
never be repeated.
