The Necks: Three (album review by Christa V.)

The Necks are an Australian avant-garde jazz trio well-loved by their cult following. This album consists of exactly three tracks, each a little over 20minutes long. All of them sound like organized chaos in that the majority of the music consists of things rattling in a very rhythmic fashion to create the beat.The first track is a great example of this, but also has a piano melody floating on top of the chaos. The second is the most sparse of the three and features more shimmery percussion and ethereal tones. Finally the last track closes with more jangling similar to the opening, but the piano takes a more percussive role while those ethereal tones become the melody. Well worth a listen!
