Tangents live @ the Metro with special guests Broken Chip

Don’t miss, the raw energy and engaging rhythms of Tangents, performing live in concert @ the 1930's Metropole Guesthouse for 'Metro Social', Sat 1st September 2018 - with special guest Broken Chip.

Tangents incendiary live shows are driven by live drums and electronic beats, with processed performances on cello, electric guitar and piano/Rhodes electric piano. Their live show is a natural extension of their recorded work – unique and unrepeatable, featuring an instinctual, organic sense of time & space, rhythm & melody between the five musicians.

New album – ‘New Bodies’, released in June by legendary Brooklyn based label Temporary Residence (Mogwai, Explosions In The Sky, Hauschka, My Disco) in mid 2018 and has been generating a whole lot of waves with listeners.

Celebrating the release of New Bodies, Tangent make a stop at the Metropole for an intimate evening of beautiful melodies, intricate grooves and exhilarating improvisation.

 

New Bodies’, is another stylistic detour for the group that continues Tangents rummage through countless varieties of electronics, rock, dub, noise and jazz that defines the group's acclaimed aesthetic.

The group are back from 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.

"Tangents artfully mix acoustic instruments and electronics in pieces that combine improvisation with careful processing." – Pitchfork
"The quintet are so comfortable working with jazz, folk music, post-rock and electronic music that the track comfortably hangs in a space between them all." – FACT Magazine

Adrian Lim-Klumpes – piano, Rhodes, vibraphone, marimba, pedals
Evan Dorrian – drum kit, percussion
Ollie Bown – computer
Peter Hollo – cello, effects
Shoeb Ahmad – guitar, pedals

+ Special Guest Broken Chip

With a contempt for conventionality and a love for experimentation, Broken Chip creates music that is electronic yet organic, machine yet human. Traditional instruments and homemade software are used for this expedition into the sonic wilderness; this Australian artist conducts an orchestra of fat wet boots crunching through snow, of dark leaky basements, of wind whispering through winter wastelands. It's a lesson in evoking mood.
