Plaistow are a Swiss post-jazz trio named after the Squarepusher song "Plaistow Flex Out," and with a song of their own titled "Steve Reich." Whether imagining new forms of techno, minimalism, post-rock/noise or improvised music, all Plaistow's recordings are realized organically with a drum kit, bass and piano.
The group met through improv and netaudio communities over five years, and now have several netlabel releases in their growing discography. The latest is on Insubordinations, a netlabel for whom Plaistow's drummer Cyril Bondi organizes concerts. Released this past month under a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license, Lacrimosa consists of two fantastically expansive minimalist tracks, and is also available in a limited edition cdr / digisleeve.
Here's a video of Plaistow performing the title track to Lacrimosa live at Jazzdor in Strasbourg France:
