NOW AVAILABLE ON VINYL! New York-based label Minimal Wave have put together a compilation of ultra rare, seventies and eighties, unreleased, and licensed tracks from as far as Japan and the former Yugoslavia.

Most of the bands on this compilation had a D.I.Y aesthetic, recorded on 4-track tape in their bedroom studios while two of them went further to collaborate by sending tapes through the mail. The sounds on this record range from raw proto-industrial to naive danceable Belgradian new wave, to filmic synthesizer music to more complex, vocal-driven melodic synthpop. TIP!
