BUREAU B celebrates 2012’s Record Store Day with a series of exclusive 12" vinyl releases!
Kreidler and Tarwater are important protagonists of the new German electronic music scene. Both bands combine electronic and analogue sounds. One of the main differences: While Kreidler makes mainly instrumental music, Tarwater use vocals on nearly every track.
Kreidler formed in 1994 in Düsseldorf (home of NEU! and Kraftwerk). They have released eight regular studio albums to this day and have remixed artists such as Depeche Mode, Einstürzende Neubauten and Faust among 20 others and cooperated with artists like Klaus Dinger (NEU!), Add (N) to X, Young Gods, Theo Altenberg, Momus, Leo Garcia, Pyrolator and Chicks on Speed. Their music has been used for high profile fashion shows (Chanel, Lacoste, Giles Deacon), films, theatre and dance performances. Their contribution to our exclusive Record Store Day vinyl consist of two previously unreleased tracks, recorded during the sessions for their latest release “Tank”: The first one, “Team”, takes us to the countryside and has a surprisingly positive aura; ”Big Eden” drops us back into the Jetztzeit, even hinting at echoes of Manchester Rave and 80s Indie Brit Pop. Is this something like the new sound of Düsseldorf?
The Berlin-based electronic duo Tarwater, consisting of Bernd Jestram and Ronald Lippok, have been releasing music since 1995. So far, they have released ten regular studio albums, collaborated with various artists (including Piano Magic, Tuxedomoon, B. Fleischmann) and produced music for numerous films and theatre pieces. Lippok has also played in the band To Rococo Rot since 1995. Tarwater's music has been labelled postrock, electronica, and kraut rock, and it is a bit of everything. Their latest release “Inside The Ships” (“one of their most entertaining, yet confounding albums”, says the British Mojo magazine) represents the different facets of the Tarwater sound cosmos: Dense soundscapes created by skillfully interweaving electronic and analogue sounds. On our exclusive 12 inch you will find three previously unreleased tracks which the band recorded during their “Inside The Ships” sessions.
