Build, Place

Build are a new-music ensemble who play an antic, bubbling mixture of chamber jazz and post-rock — violins pluck in spirited little patterns above muted, prismatic piano chords in "Behavior Patterns"; "Dissolve" rumbles along to a driving drum-kit pulse; "Ride" ambles dreamily alongside a melancholic side street that Nick Drake might have visited. It's all played and executed with a light-footed, airy style, sure to sink deftly into the independent film playing in your mind.
