"Now in their twenty-fourth year, the Necks' new release, Mindset, their sixteenth album, and first LP - features two starkly contrasting tracks: the pulsating, raw, 'Rum Jungle' and the slower building, rather hypnotic 'Daylights.' Polyrhythms imbue both pieces with powerful forward motion, embroiled with which ethereal piano patterns interweave with bass, drums, electronics, churning Hammonds and noise-guitars. Drummer and percussionist Tony Buck writes: Mindset shares some elements in common with our previous album Silverwater (RER NECKS9), 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."
