A compilation of Minimal Wave from around the world ‘79-‘85. »The Hidden Tapes« features rare, unreleased, and licensed tracks from as far as Japan and the former Yugoslavia. Most of the bands on this compilation 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. The Hidden Tapes presents songs from DANTON’S VOICE, OSKAROVA FOBIJA, THE FAST SET, SYMPATHY NERVOUS, PAS DE DEUX, UNOVIDUAL + TARA CROSS, SS-SAY, ROBERT LAWRENCE + MARK PHILLIPS, KYM AMPS and RESERVE, all lovingly remastered.
