"The latest release by the extraordinary Australian improvising ambient/jazz trio, The Necks, is drawn from a soundtrack the group composed for the prize-winning Australian movie, The Boys. For the Necks this is a revolutionary move; gone are the hour-long shifting luminous improvisations which they have made their own special territory. Here you will find seven short-ish instrumentals, each developing a different sound and mood. The usual Neck's components (floating acoustic piano, anchoring double bass, and skimming drums are all present, but are set to very different tasks. There's a darkness absent from their other releases, and the CD ends with full-blown Joy Divisionish rock, with fuzzed up bass and heavy tribal drums. Along the way, The Necks expand on Erik Satie-like vignettes, tempered with electronic sounds and ambiences, insistent rhythms reminiscent of the Velvet Underground, and music and sounds that are subtly sensuous and extremely addictive."
