Australian quintet Tangents continue to display their "post-everything" approach to improvisation on their third full-length, New Bodies, which follows the adventurous yet accessible 2016 release Stateless. As they did on that album, here the group construct smoothly flowing pieces, heavy on skittering drums and lush textures produced by vibraphone, cello, guitars, and other instruments. Even with obvious studio effects such as reversed notes and choppy, processed drums, the songs sound natural, seamlessly fusing technology with human energy.
