Stones Throw takes a slight detour from their signature blend of classic beats, with their upcoming release of The Minimal Wave Tapes. Set to release January 26th, the electro-synth infused tracks are the first official anthology (on CD, LP and digital) of Minimal Wave music from this label. Most of the songs were originally released on limited edition cassettes or vinyl by the artists themselves, and only a handful of people knew about them. They’ve been remastered from their analog source tapes and compiled by Minimal Wave’s Veronica Vasicka and Stones Throw’s Peanut Butter Wolf.

The Minimal Wave genre was hallmarked by the use of the analog synths and drum machines manufactured in the 70s and 80s, and characterized by simple music structures made by musicians working in the early D.I.Y. asthetic: recording on tape in their home studios, creating their own album artwork, and often collaborating via postage mail.
