Review: The judicious Minimal Wave clan deliver another brilliant compilation of rare and wonderful music from the 1980's, this time an anthology of the best work from Japanese artiste Tomo Akikawabaya. Sourcing these songs in their original format has become harder and harder over the years, so they've really done us a favour with this effort. The double LP is made up of loneseom drones, lo-fi drum machine grooves and gorgeous synth work, all coated in Akikawabaya's wonderful vocal stance. The Japanese artiste has a unique style that borders on the melancholic, yet her music is always charged by a driving, proto techno feel. This is one to check if you weren't in the know.

Review: A special release from Minimal Wave here as the uber rare Irene & Mavis EP from UK synth poppers Blancmange is granted a reissue! Those with a pub quiz winning level of knowledge of UK synth pop will no doubt be familiar with the 80s hits of Blancmange duo Neil Arthur & Stephen Luscombe, yet this debut EP dating back to 1980 will still sound revelatory. The self released Irene & Mavis EP marked Arthur and Luscombe to be fully willing to experiment with DIY electronics, impressing Mute founder Daniel Miller sufficiently to proclaim them "maiden aunts of electronic music," and thus more than suited as a subject of focus from the Minimal Wave label. There are definite similarities between this nascent stage of Blancmange and the output of Cabaret Voltaire from the same era, particularly in the masked and disembodied nature of the vocals, whilst "Holiday Camp" and "Just Another Spectre" are wonderful examples of instrumental synth music. Despite originally being released in 7" format, the six newly remastered tracks are presented here in 10" format by Minimal Wave with the distinctive artwork retained!

Review: For Missing Tapes, Minimal Wave has managed to unearth a wealth of previously unheard gems from Dutch electro trailblazer Danny Bosten. Dark electro diggers may be aware of Bosten's early 1980s work, which was initially self-released on cassette, but has also been re-issued since by Minimal Wave and others. The material here was recorded in the same period and rediscovered some years back by the producer. It's similar in style, as you'd expect, with Bosten variously exploring otherworldly electro, sci-fi leaning Italo-disco, stylish, new wave synth workouts, and throbbing proto-techno. What impresses most, though, is the seeming freshness of the material; it might be 35 years old, but it still sounds formidably futuristic.

Review: With Minimal Wave at their current celebrated level, it's nice of them to occasionally dig into their archives and reissue some of their earliest releases for those Johnny Come Lately's who might have missed out first time around. Having done the right thing with an all too timely reissue of Das Ding's HSTA late last year, Veronica Vasicka's label now turn their attentions to Blackpool and revisit Spy Thriller by Das Kabinette. Originally released back in 2008, this eight track collection brings together material the trio of Michael Hall, David Bracher and Craig Hemmings recorded in the early 80s including the cult hits "The Cabinet" and "Fudge It" which appeared on a 1983 7". Fans of Silent Servant mixtapes will probably be familiar with these tracks whilst the remaining six tracks are typically unreleased studio productions that paint a fascinating picture of primitive synth music that's subtley touched by the death throes of New Romanticism.

Review: France proves to be rich pickings once more for the Minimal Wave label with this absolutely superb collection of "ritualistic minimal electronics" from French duo DZ Lectric + Anthon Shield. Crossing paths in Paris in the early 80s, Christian Dezert (DZ Lectric ) and Michel Lecamp (Anthon Shield) bonded over a mutual appreciation of The Stooges, Throbbing Gristle and Suicide and went on to record numerous albums together over a five year period. The focus of Minimal Wave's attentions on the Lickin' LP is the cassette Confessions D'Un Masque the pair released in 1985, with eight tracks lifted and remastered from the original reel to reel tapes. DZ Lectric + Anthon Shield's sparse yet manic approach, described as "challenging and hypnotic" by Minimal Wave, will appeal to fans of CHBB.

Review: The second of three rather dashing looking Minimal Wave releases this week throws the focus on the early 80s work of Bristol duo Five Times of Dust. Minimal Wave's interest in Robert Lawrence and Mark Philip's work together was first revealed back in 2011 with the inclusion of their composition "Computer Bank" on The Hidden Tapes compilation, whilst Veronica Vasicka's label hinted at a more substantial Five Times Of Dust offering earlier this year with the cassette reissue of The Dadacomputer, Phillips and Lawrence's debut release together. Smile with the Eyes is that promised extensive reappraisal of Five Times of Dust, drawing from a large pool of unreleased material recorded by Robert Lawrence and Mark Philips between 1982 and 1986, which fully justifies the label's description as "perfectly formed electronic curiosities". Cuts like "The Single Off The Album" and "Ethnic Bomb" demand further investigation.

Review: Originally released back in the early '80s, Veronica Vasicka's label has done its audience a fine service by re-releasing Portrait by Swiss duo Guyers Connection. Full of self-conscious vocals and in places decidedly lo-fi synth lines, it's surprising and disappointing that this collection wasn't a big hit first time round. After all, both "Pogo of Techno" and "Keep the City Clean" are as catchy as an oddball Yazoo, "Die Grille" is a jaw-dropping, windswept synth composition and "National Und Stander" sees the duo fuse ponderous piano lines with pulsing, rippling basslines. Best of all though is "Ein Glas Voll Gurken" a breathy synth-pop song that could have conquered charts had it been sung in English.

  2. Sacred Heart
  3. Desolation Land
  4. Je Suis Passee
  5. Dirty
  6. For Pleasure
Review: The unwritten rule with any release from the Minimal Wave camp is that the illuminating nature of the music and the delightful way it's presented will almost always be matched by the story behind it - something that is undeniably true of their latest release, a collection of tracks from mid 80s UK synth act Hard Corps. Fronted by towering vocalist Regine Fetet, the band surfaced in 1984 with the two track single Dirty (the title track is included here) gained the studious attentions of John Peel (RIP) before signing with a major label and granted the chance to work with two 80s production titans in Martin Rushent and Daniel Miller. Hard Corps disbanded in 1989, having only released the one single Je Suis Passee amidst malcontent at their lack of support from Polydor. Clean Tables Have To Be Burnt collates six tracks from the Hard Corps canon, with the aforementioned "hits" accompanied by unheard archival material that will pique the fancy of any self regarding Minimal Wave fan.

Review: Minimal Wave return to their self-professed "First French love" In Aeternam Vale with a second LP-shaped trawl through the band's sizeable archive of cassette only releases. The Brooklyn imprint first introduced us to the work of the hugely prolific Lyon band with an eponymous LP of remastered material in 2009, and Dub Under Brightness proves to be just as important a release. The label points to an article on the band originally published by the Douche Froide magazine in 2002, where the journalist nails their appeal in the opening gambit - "There are bands that have been acting ruthlessly in the shadow for years, in a completely confidential manner, then one day chance (but does chance exist?) makes you find one of their recordings, listen to it, and at that moment you could kick yourself for not having discovered these soundscapes earlier and you try to find all of them". If you haven't indulged in the sounds of In Aeternam Vale yet, this eight track selection makes for a perfect introductory primer.

  2. Ultrabase
Review: Lyon group In Aeternam Vale have been a long term fixture in the Minimal Wave release schedule, commencing with a self-titled compilation back in 2009 which has latterly been complemented by a further LP and several 12?s that have revealed band leader Laurent Prot to be a master of extended electronic productions that sound very much ahead of their time. This is demonstrated once more on Machine a Laver 12 which features two unreleased gems excavated from Prot's sizeable archives. Attentive followers of Minimal Wave manoeuvres will no doubt recognise the "12 minutes of pure electronic hypnotica" that is the title track from Vasicka's recent guest mix for Benji B. It's complemented by the equally long form "Ultrabase," a dub techno composition originating from 1990 which feels just as revelatory as the extended edition of "Highway Dark Veins" released on Minimal Wave last year. Wonderfully presented as always, the two tracks have been pressed on the most electric blue of heavyweight clear vinyl by Minimal Wave.

  3. Animals Don't Mind
Review: After a recent excellent outing on the Jealous God label, In Aeternam Vale returns for Minimal Wave duty with the Gnd Lift 12". The long running project of Lyon artist Laurent Prot, the 12" focussed archival transmissions on Minimal Wave tend to be some of the label's best releases and that is certainly the case here. Lead track "Gnd Lift" weighs in at a mighty 14 minutes and is up there with "Dust Under Brightness" in our favourite IA V mind benders; serious slowed down murky proto techno vibes! Complementing this J'ai Mange Des Nerfs" echoes some of Prot's earlier wave-based experiments and "Animals Don't Mind" is the epitome of foreboding primitive electronics. Pressed on 160 gram clear transparent deep purple vinyl and housed in another excellent sleeve from Veronica Vasicka.

  4. Magic Words Command
Review: The combination of Richard H. Kirk and Minimal Wave was never going to disappoint, but the four tracks on this Never Lose Your Shadow 12" are still very special! Digging deep through the archives of the Cabaret Voltaire front man, Veronica Vasicka presents a quartet of solo recordings that have never been committed to wax before. The highlight is undoubtedly the A Side title track, a lolloping ten minute track of hypnotic industrial action made all the more memorable by Kirk's acerbic intonations about "the blind leading the blind". If you've caught a Vasicka DJ set recently you will have probably lost yourself to these ten minutes. On the flip are three tracks recorded in the same late '70s period which are distinctly more experimental in tone and just as vital.

Review: Minimal Wave returns to their Belgian fancy, Linear Movement, for an all new trawl through their archive called The Linear Way. Two of the six tracks featured, "The Linear Way" and "Don't Try To Trick Me", have been lifted from the band's rare 1983 Pulse Music tape whilst the remainder are Linear Movement songs that have seen official release before. Of the latter, the quirky quasi techno of "Inside Outside" - potentially the best tune on here - and the mechanical, slow-burning lo-fi electro of "I Might As Well Be There" stand out in particular. But The Linear Way sounds great as a whole. Highly recommended.

Review: Minimal Wave return to the band that started their impressive endeavours with a fourth pressing of the Oppenheimer Analysis EP which is presented in loving memory of founding member Martin Lloyd who sadly passed away earlier this year. A welcome chance to bask in the duo's politically charged wave sounds for anyone that missed out on the previous three pressings here, with two absolute classics from the Oppenheimer Analysis cassette "New Mexico" present in the shape of "The Devil's Dancer" and Silent Servant favourite "Cold War". In addition there are two unreleased cuts culled from the archives of Andy Oppenheimer and Martin Lloyd that further demonstrate what an important band Oppenheimer Analysis were!

Review: For fans of minimal wave and DIY electronic pop, Oppenheimer Analysis's self-released 1982 debut cassette, New Mexico - little more than an extended demo cassette - has become something of a collector's item. While it has been reissued digitally since, it never received a vinyl release. In tribute to Martin Lloyd (the other half of the duo, alongside Andy Oppenheimer), who passed away recently, Minimal Wave has decided to make New Mexico available on wax for the first time. While the sound quality is appropriately dusty (it was badly recorded in the first place, of course), the music remains magical - bubbling, evocative, left-of-centre leftfield pop created with home-made synthesizers, modular hardware and little else. It's no wonder many consider it a classic album (even if was never officially released first time round).

Review: After last year's brooding 7", Regis and Silent Servant return to Minimal Wave with their Sandra Electronics project and to be honest, we couldn't be more excited. Hearing what these two techno leviathans are up to in their more industrial modes is both a privilege and a pleasure to the ear-drums. Exploring the genre-less corners of coldwave and post-punk, this six-track EP is probably one if this year's hottest releases so far. From the crisp, metallic drum twists of "It Slipped Her Mind" to the almost Middle-Eastern sounds of "Protection Now!", and the noisy, Gristle-like bounce of "Publicity (demo)", it's a total winner in our books. You also get a live version of "Want Need", where the duo culminate into total insanity and tie things off in fine style. Are these two going to concentrate on this kind of stuff form now one? We hope so, this is it. Highly recommended.

Recorded under the Sandra Plays Electronics banner, Her Needs presents two versions of the same track from different periods of O'Connor's musical development and provide further enticing historical evidence of one of techno's most illuminating figureheads. Those who indulged in the brilliant White Savage Dance 12" from Downwards from late 2011 will be all over the DIY odes to O'Connor's childhood heroes such as DAF and Liaisons Dangereuses here. The 1999 version in particular which originates from the same recording sessions that ended in the seminal Diversion Group release A Man Has Responsibilities.

Review: Plastic Love sees Minimal Wave further document the prolific Sympathy Nervous output of Japanese artist Yosihumi Niinuma following last year's Automaticism LP. Though Niinuma's recordings span some three decades from the 1970s onwards, the focus of this collection narrows to the period between 1979 and 1980 and consists entirely of tracks that never made it beyond his studio. Plastic Love essentially demonstrates how hard it is to pin down Sympathy Nervous stylistically, with the nine tracks perfectly capturing Niinuma's stylistic diversity as well as his inherent eccentricity. Opening track "Khaki Cloud" is a balls out explosion of cascading synth textures, percussion and Lee Scratch Perry style vocal nonsense that seems all the more devilish when followed by the more restrained but equally oddball "Antawa Suguni", proto techno experimentalism at its finest. Niinuma's wife contributes vocals to "Butoubyou No Syounen" an exercise in pure synth pop that's one of the highlights here along with the guttural post punk dub brilliance of "Untitled 1".

This time Veronica Vasicka and company switch their focus to the cult mid 80s Swedish synth cassette compilation Orgelvark. The 23 tracks spread across the two heavy weight 160g slabs of vinyl give a newly remastered look at the multifaceted music which surfaced from the underground tape scene in Sweden, bridging the gaps between outright synth pop, industrial music and more. This vinyl edition includes five unreleased tracks, along with a rather enlightening letter from the compiler Tor Sigvardson as well as detailed band notes across the gatefold sleeve. It makes for an enlightening peak at the fledgling beginnings of Swedish synth based music, a genre which these days is stronger than ever.

Review: For those with an interest in the development of electronic music in the late '70s and early '80s, the sporadic synth-wave collections from New York-based Minimal Wave Records have always been essential listening. This latest missive, originally released on a limited vinyl pressing earlier this year, offers another treasure trove of little known and unreleased material from the period. Most pleasingly, it offers a truly global outlook, showcasing music from Japan, the US, UK and the former Yugoslavia. Predictably, there's much to enjoy, from the skewiff vocoder electro of Polaroid and low-end madness of Robert Lawrence to the synth-phonic doodlings of Reserve and new wave strut of Danton's Voice.
