Tangents

Friday 20 July 2018

Sydney-based quintet Tangents join us for a Studio 5 Live performance to celebrate the recent release of their new album New Bodies.

Forming in 2010 with the curation of a one-off improv concert by guitarist Shoeb Ahmad and cellist Peter Hollo, at Megaphon Studios in Sydney. A recording of that concert, via post-production, became their first LP, I, a joint release on Shoeb’s hellosQuare label and the Not Applicable label, and co-founded by Tangents laptoppist, London-born electronic music experimenter Ollie Bown. I laid out the band’s range in drone aesthetics, noise, free improvisation and electronic rhythms.

In subsequent output, Tangents have striven to change up their process. 2016’s Stateless, their first LP with New York label Temporary Residence, is a construction of overdubs and edited jam sessions that is eclectic, strongly electronic and revelrous.

2018’s New Bodies marks out a space in-between through studio improvisations and post-processing, manifesting in moments of post-rock and jazz that mixes virtuosic improvisation with studio trickery.

Listen back to Tomorrow Land for Tangents on Friday July 20 from 1pm.

Studio 5 Live is proudly brought to you by Mountain Goat.
