Continuing with the deft minimalism that has marked them out in critical circles in recent years, New York ensemble Bing & Ruth return with their third record No Home of the Mind. Established in 2006, Bing & Ruth is an ever-evolving collective steered by composer David Moore. A pianist from Kansas and graduate of New York's school of Jazz and Contemporary Music at the New School, Moore's work follows in the great tradition of fellow alumni John Cage and Steve Reich, albeit looking past the more studied repetition of the style's forerunners toward a meditative form built on feeling.

With Moore at its nucleus, Bing & Ruth's line-up has transmuted from the 11-strong line-up that created debut album City Lake ("A stunning, humble record built on traditions we all understand, yet, somehow feels dizzyingly new." – The Quietus) to a cast of 7 for 2014's Tomorrow Was The Golden Age ("One of the finest leftfield releases of the year." – Pitchfork). With No Home of the Mind, the ensemble has been streamlined to a 5-person unit, exploring the piano's percussive qualities alongside running woodwinds, warbling tape delays and splattered upright bass lines that stare out with a wide-eyed transcendence, taking so-called "classical" music to new limits.
