LA’s Stones Throw Records, a longtime bastion of quality underground hip hop, is now shining a spotlight on the world of ‘Minimal Wave’, the stripped-down cousin of early 80s New Wave.  Stones Throw have just released the Minimal Wave Tapes anthology, but to get a free taste of the synths and drum machines, you can download the Minimal Wave mix Stones Thrown podcast, which contains tracks from the compilation and other obscure gems.
