The Tangent Songs From The Hard Shoulder CD Andy Tillison

The Tangent's 12th studio album Songs From The Hard Shoulder marks the band's 20th anniversary and sees Andy Tillison and co focusing almost entirely on their long format songs or "epics", with only one song being less than 16 minutes long.

From a luscious and uplifting song about loneliness in Covid lockdown, to a full on jazz/prog/canterbury fusion instrumental, to a darkly electronic story of a homeless woman with shades of Nine Inch Nails, Po90, Japan and Van Der Graaf lurking within to the 4 minute Motown-style track Wasted Soul, Songs From The Hard Shoulder showcases a band at ease with itself.

Limited edition CD featuring a cover of UK's In The Dead Of Night

Andy Tillison (Vocal/Keyboards), Jonas Reingold (Bass), Luke Machin (Guitar/Vocals), Steve Roberts (Drums) and Theo Travis (Sax & Flute).
