Sydney produces a kind of minimal improv style that is gorgeous and immersive, made recognisable by bands like The Necks and Triosk. The Pollen Trio are a band picking up this thread in their own special way: modestly stated, calm, not dissimilar from their Norwegian counterparts (it is nice to wonder what kind of geographical influences there are in the music of both countries). Evan Dorrian is a drummer with a phenomenal gestural palette who I think will become an influence to many.
