Spider Smile by Tarwater
Released: Apr 2007
Label: Morr Music
Kraftwerkian chug and slide guitar -- plus a raft of bleeps, chirps and oddball acoustic instruments -- establish the twin poles of Tarwater's second album for Morr Music. On the one hand, it's an exploration of American culture (via California pop, country affect and outsiders like Harry Partch); on the other, it's an extension of the old Krautrock impulse to blur ideas and instruments into something immersive and uncannily familiar, despite the novelty of its sounds.
