Australia micro-jazz trio the Necks are an edge-of-your seat proposition, a sap-slow churn that walks the line between meditative, hypnotic, and downright harrowing. Their hour-or-so-long, endlessly repeating, casually unraveling songs exist somewhere between Philip Glass minimalism, Bohren doom-plod, and Faust improv trickery. In the intimate space of the Issue Project room, you'll feel each vibration of the gently malleted cymbals and twinkling keys.
