The prolific record label run by Josh Cheon has unearthed an assortment of music recorded between 1980 and 1989 showcasing new wave and post punk from across Mexico.
Much of the material features home recording techniques and was produced using whatever analog drum boxes, synthesizers and instruments they could find at the time. Spanning ten tracks the compilation will be released on the 24th of September later this month.
The release is described as follows:
"This release marks the first time many of these songs will have appeared on vinyl; it is also the first ever vinyl compilation of Mexican New Wave and post-punk. While synth pop and obscure electronics from Europe and the United States have been extensively documented, much less attention has been paid to such offerings from the periphery."
Tracks from Avant Garde, Vandana, and Silueta Pálida all feature.
