Various Artists - Neue Muster Volumes 1 & 2

Not going to say much about this one. Pretty monolithic grouping from Tonspur and the first of the Neu Muster series which goes up to at least 7-8.

Volume 1 - Side A
Volume 1 - Side B
Volume 2 - Side A
Volume 2 - Side B

Ann Summer - Baby Doll Play Suit

As Mutantsounds said it when they posted my rip:

"Totally unknown wierd electronic /minimal synth tape.Glintchy streched out synth sounds sometimes pop-ish(well a certain way),sometimes dark and wacky.If this was released in the 70s it would have been an excellent library music LP ,in the vein of Delia Derbyshire or Cecil Leuter.In all terms awesome!"

Not sure I agree with the library music statement or not, it has a bit more subdued angst than that.

Thanks Tor Sigvardson for doing Neukoln and 18E:Oktober!

VA - Embellishment Collection 2 (2nd Edition) (MC,borft033,1991)

Here is the cassette follow-up to the fine LP Embellishment Collection I on the legendary Swedish label Börft Records. Ranges from cut-up,noise, through industrial, to the blip-blop of Frak and some synth-not-so-pop scattered about.

Several of the usual suspects with highlights from Sirius b, Konkurrenterna, Njurmannen, Enema & Gejonte, and Gas, IMHO.

This second edition was in a series of 50.

Martin Newell - Songs for a Fallow Land

Inaugural post to what is sure to be a "lite" blog of relative obscurities.
I'll update with aggregator host links later. For now RS.

Martin of Cleaners From Venus released this beauty in Spring 1985.
