Minimal Wave Tapes Vol. 2 (2XLP)
Minimal Wave: underground DIY electronic music from North America & Europe in the late 70s-80s. Characterized by 70s synth & drum machine production and home recording, most of these track were privately released on limited-edition cassettes or vinyl and known only to a handful of people over the years. New Yor- ker VERONICA VASICKA has spent the past five years painstakingly building the Minimal Wave catalog, and a label of the same name that specializes in digging up and reissuing the music. Partnering here with STONES THROW, the recordings have been officially li- censed, remastered from their analog source tapes and compiled here by Vasicka and Stones Throw’s PEANUT BUTTER WOLF.
