Style: Indietronics. The Berlin-based electronic duo (Ronald Lippok & Bernd Jestram) produced 11 studio albums since 1995 and various collaborations (eg with Piano Magic, Tuxedomoon...), as well as numerous film and theater scores. Lippok also plays in the band To Rococo Rot. "Adrift" contains 13 songs, 4 of which are instrumentals. Tarwater, who particularly in the British music press are happily and quite fittingly placed in the tradition of the Krautrock of the 70s, tap into a different close relative on "Adrift", which is also one of few Tarwater albums not to feature a cover version. Instead there are 4 assimilations of texts by befriended and esteemed poets. "Adrift" finishes on an ethereal note: "Rice And Fish" features a cameo by Sabrina Milena alias Milenasong. Milena provides the shimmering background to Lippok's laconic vocals, alongside psychedelic guitar sounds, electronic loops and a bossa nova rhythm. Minimalism sounds different.
