Label: Aproximate Art Agency – AAA 2010 MC Format: Cassette, Album Country: USSR Released: 1989 Genre: Electronic, Rock Style: Avantgarde, Experimental, New Wave
Deadstock cassette mined from Latvia's intriguing 19 Gadi Pirms Sākuma group, released from behind the Iron Curtain on the excellent Aproximate Art Agency label. Forming at the tail end of the Soviet Union at a time when independent artistic expression (previously repressed) began to flourish, the four-piece group offer a uniquely off-kilter take on emerging new-wave styles albeit indebted to traditional baltic styles with a dotted line to smoozing electro jazz. A musical anachronism that's of interest to anyone that dug into their fellow Latvian contemporaries N.S.R.D, the more known YMO, or genre-bending Made To Measure series from Crammed Discs. (Mint / New).
