Tangents - Timeslips & Chimeras CD
Tangents formed in Sydney in 2010 and released their debut album "I" in 2013, a recording of their first ever meeting and live show.
Follow-up albums "Stateless" (2016) and "New Bodies" (2018), and linked singles and EPs, explored a style of post-produced live improvisation that marked the group’s distinct blend of electronic, jazz, rock and new music-inspired styles. Amidst other international recognition, "New Bodies" was nominated for the Australian Music Prize in 2018.
Their latest release, "Timeslips and Chimeras", continues their studio recording journey after a detour into intensive live performance (idiosyncratically captured in a cramped radio studio on the "Risk Reaps Reward" EP) and a major digital art installation, Spiral, at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney. The record continues their relationship with New York label Temporary Residence through the challenges of music production in the Covid-19 era. Tangents are Ollie Bown, Evan Dorrian, Peter Hollo and Adrian Lim-Klumpes. Sia Ahmad is a former member whose work continues through the "Timeslips and Chimeras" production period.
For fans of Can, Tortoise, Four Tet and the Necks.
