Bo' Weavil is excited to present the second album from the Sydney trio Roil. All three of the members of Roil, James Waples, Mike Majkowski and Chris Abrahams have been active in the Australian jazz and improvised music scenes for many years; James is possibly best known for his work in the Mike Nock Trio; Mike performs regularly with such musicians as Jon Rose and Clayton Thomas; many people would know of Chris through his work with the three-piece group The Necks. Together they have been playing as Roil since 2007, and this is their first release outside of Australia. Their music draws upon a varied palette; at times, it comes close to free jazz, at other times to experimental improv, 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. Limited to 500 copies.
