A.T.L Sweeping, ambitious and orchestral post-rock and jazz. I really enjoy how prominent the drums are in many of the tracks, and that even though the songs are long they never feel meandering. For some reason the synth parts remind me of The Doors. I like that. Favorite track: Terracotta.

Michael Mueller Tangents' sound is a twitchy times dizzyingly diverse blend of math rock and jazz-inflected electronica.

It's melodically rich, immersive and often spacious, but far too cerebral to be anything close to ambient.

It's noticeably more organic than its (excellent) predecessor, relying far more on live instrumentation than samples and loops of them.

As a result, it ebbs and flows with real intensity, highlighting the musical chops of the band.

Eclectic, innovative and rewarding. Recommended. Favorite track: Arteries.

Alexis Courtin When many genres collide to create a new hubrid musical realm both magical and hypnotic. Tangents is simply the best band to have emerged from down under in recent years. Listen blindly....and loudly. Favorite track: Gone To Ground.

David Beiszer A pre order for a mid June drop date? It’s only March. But, this is Tangents, and of course it’s going to be fucking amazing. So shut up, take my money, and roll on June 15th.

about

After an eventful year of touring throughout their native Australia – including runs with labelmates MONO and like-
minded pioneers Tortoise – and featuring alongside the work of artist David Hockney at the National Gallery of Victoria, post-everything quintet Tangents return with another album, and another stylistic detour.

New Bodies continues Tangents’ rummage through countless varieties of electronics, rock, dub, noise, and free improv jazz that defines the group’s acclaimed aesthetic. The spacious dub of a plucked cello gives way to a minimalist breakbeat tableau resting over rhythmic prepared piano; a staid electronic groove is gradually absorbed into washes of frenzied improv; staccato synths are woven into tumbling avant-rock; and shimmering free drums phase over static loops of piano, guitar and cello.

To quote FACT Magazine, “The quintet are so comfortable working with jazz, folk music, post-rock and electronic music that it comfortably hangs in a space between them all.” On New Bodies, that description rings more intuitive and authentic than ever.
