What Happened to You?

I wrote about the newest Minimal Wave Tapes compilation (a while ago and then it got published today):

"When asked about the influence of these buried-to-the-point-of-near invisibility curiosities on his current project, minimal synth torchbearer Sean McBride of Xeno and Oaklander and Martial McBride said, “It was as if these groups were writing soundtracks to a film depicting their own extinction.”  Two years after the release of the aforementioned compilation, minimal wave’s spotlight moment may have passed, but it is now in the precarious position of not having been forgotten."

Here's a couple other things I wrote about minimal wave a few years back:

* Things We Were Due to Forget: The Cold Undertow on Minimal Waves

* The Minimal Waves Volume 1
