Album Review

Los Microwaves – “Birth of Techno, The” – [Hyperspace Communications]

cinder   1/26/2022   12-inch, A Library

A trio of David Javelosa (synth and vocals), Meg Brazill (bass and vocals) & Todd “Rosa” Rosencrans (drums). This plops you right down in the glorious new wave/minimal pop era of the early 1980s. The first half is studio, the second half are live tracks, some recorded in San Francisco at a venue called I-Beam. A little Gang of Four, with a splash of Blondie, and a good dousing of The Buggles. Most have vox, but there are a few instrumentals which would work great for electronic shows. I super love this!
