Tangents + Special Guest Broken Chip In Concert at The Metropole Guesthouse
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.
Their new album, New Bodies is now released by legendary Brooklyn based label Temporary Residence (Mogwai, Explosions In The Sky, Hauschka, My Disco).
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, Tangents return with their new album New Bodies, another stylistic detour that continues their rummage through countless varieties of electronics, rock, dub, noise and jazz that defines the group’s acclaimed aesthetic.
Celebrating the release of New Bodies, the group make a stop at the Metropole for an intimate evening of beautiful melodies, intricate grooves and exhilarating improvisation.

+ 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.
