tarwater - The Needle Was Travelling

"The Needle Was Traveling" is Tarwater's fifth studio album and their first release on Morr Music. Among those who already had a chance to listen it's widely considered to be their finest album since their amazing debut 'Silur'. Up until a couple of years ago it was still somehow possible to relate tarwater's music to buzzwords associated with Electronica. Today, Tarwater's hermetic and ambiguously shining sound alchemy is at a point where you just cannot tell anymore when it has actually been created. There is a new tone to tarwater's music now, breathing a narrative quality into their songs. Carried by a warm and softly insisting pulse, they glide from one track, one chapter to the next while exploring bewitched, yet strangely familiar landscapes. What used to be "tracks" is turning more and more into songs, a development that already started with their last album "Dwellers On The Threshold". For the first time, the band didn't develop their music by first layering keyboard sounds, instead using "traditional" instruments like bass,drums and guitar. Samples and other parts triggered by keyboards have only been added at a later stage of the songwriting process - as well as contributions by friends like Dirk Dresselhaus (Schneider TM), Marc Weiser (Rechenzentrum) or Hanno Leichtmann (Static), who accidentally popped into Bernd Jestram`s newly established studio and got more or less spontaneously involved in the artistic process. During twelve months of recording, Bernd Jestram and Ronald Lippok came up with so much material that it hardly fits on on a single record. The CD version featurs 13 original songs, and also a cover version of "Babylonian Tower" by the almost forgotten, belgian-israeli Postpunk Band Minimal Compact. The vinyl version is released as a double album containing 20 minutes of bonus material on the fourth side.
