Out via Veronica Vasicka’s Minimal Wave is “A Compilation of Minimal Wave From Around The World (1980-1991), The Bedroom Tapes”. This release, originally first released in 2018, features rare, unreleased, and licensed tracks all the way from Belgium to Australia to Japan.
This compilation is a follow-up in the series to “The Lost Tapes”, “The Found Tapes”, “The Hidden Tapes”, and “The Minimal Wave Tapes”. The twelve artists on this compilation mostly recorded their music onto 4-track tape in their bedroom studios. Musically you can expect German new wave, experimental electronic, early industrial body music from the Swedish countryside and melodic minimal synth.
“The Bedroom Tapes” presents songs from Pink Elln, Karen Marks, Disque Omo, Vorgruppe, Iham/Echo, Perfect Mother, Arvid Tuba, Subject, Denial, Unovidual, Aural indifference, and Autumn. All the material has been remastered and comes in a limited second edition of 999 copies, pressed on 180-gram vinyl and housed in heavy printed jacket accompanied by printed inner jacket with artists photos and info.

Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
