Aussie avant-jazz trio The Necks have taken a break from whatever stereotypically Australian thing you could imagine them doing to release their latest LP, Mindset, marking the band’s first time on vinyl (most albums have been a single track nearly filling the capacity of a CD). The LP is available now on ReR Megacorp and the release has set the group on the road — or in a plane, probably. The Necks will be playing throughout the UK this month on a double bill with avant-garde composer and poet Harold Budd, presented by Sound and Music.
