Mexican Summer turn back time with this Anthology Recordings compendium of 80's synth wave outfit The Nightcrawlers, pieced together from some 30 plus cassette albums released during the groups life time.
At this point, its becoming a bit hard to get excited about the seemingly endless wave of 80s ambient/new age/post-punk 'lost' cassette albums and B-sides a plenty, all cleaned up and still sounding muddy yet cut to a deluxe vinyl reissue edition. Yet! Hold tight on this one as The Nightcrawlers really were an act who at the time of recording were criminally underrated and under appreciated. The 14 tracks here act as the perfect entry point to the trios home brew brand of kosmische synthesizer music, trimming away the more out there elements and focusing on the very best lo-fi sounds the group ever produced. Truly brilliant stuff and for those intrigued, the start of much musical journeying into the deep discography of the group. An ace entry point towards submerging yourself into The Nightcrawlers sounds.
