Boomkat Product Review:
German duo Tarwater have been cultivating their oddball sound - somewhere between skew-whiff electro-pop and plangent post-rock experimentation - for more than 15 years, and for those who've been keeping an eye on 'em during this time, their evolution has been really impressive. Inside The Ships - something like their tenth album - finds them at the top of their game, their synthesis of guitar, electronic pulsation and pastorally psyched-out, swinging chamber instrumentation at times coming over like a hypothetical hook-up between Alan Vega, Robert Wyatt and Gong. There really are some beauties on here: 'Radio War' sounds like early Sonic Youth might have done if they'd come out of minimal synth rather than no wave, while 'In A Day' summons the prismatic jazz-kraut minimalism of Tortoise or Stereolab. They might have completely disappeared off the map of trendiness, but Tarwater's music has never really sounded so relevant - don't be surprised if the hipster blogosphere suddenly decides to reclaim 'em on the strength of this dazzlingly inventive new LP.
