The Necks, an Australian trio who’s been recording music for more then thirty years, is just what I need right now.
I’ve been listening lately to their wonderful 1998 release The Boys
(A soundtrack to a film in the same name), and I gotta say that in night time walks with my deaf dog, Oren the King – this album is just the added value these trips need.
Usually, The Necks is recording VERY long tracks, sometimes an hour long, with abstract improvisation, but on this album it’s a different case. The trio – piano-bass-drums, repeats some melodic lines over and over again while adding acoustic and electric instruments here and there, which ends up to be some beautiful environmental pieces of music – and short ones, three to six minutes. There are some longer tracks but the overall vibe is very focused and maintain the cinematic-jazz-post rockish in a way – vibe.
MusicHi, welcome to my blog. I'm a musician from Tel Aviv and I sometimes write about the music that inspires me in some way, cross genre. Stick around and please do visit my Soundcloud page to listen. Enjoy, Yair Yona.
