"Tarwater (Ronald Lippok and Bernd Jestram) return with The Needle Was Traveling, their fifth regular album and their first release on Morr Music. It shows the duo that in 1996 sprang from East Berlin underground bands like Rosa Extra and Ornament & Verbrechen at the height of their artistic abilities. There is a new tone to their 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 -- you'll never really know if they are placed on a time axis in a far away future or if they are part of a long forgotten universe, which is said to have been the place where truth once used to live."
