should have recorded in on tape
maybe they did... maybe they didn't but it sounds like it was recorded onto a computer using a decent recording interface. Trouble is... minimal wave just doesn't record directly on to digital very well unless you really know what you are doing. It needs a kind of thickening or a warming that only a good tape machine can really capture. I mean... you CAN do it digitally, but you need to run it into something to give it some life. I loved how parts of this album payed homage to EARLY cabaret voltaire, but... you listen to the actual early voltaire stuff, and you can tell what I mean. Part of minimal wave back then was the medium it was recorded on NOT just the cool weird sounding electronics. Don't totally pay attention to me though... Im very very picky about my sound. This IS a very cool album. Me being an engineer makes me pay attention to the sound first. "Dost the sound match what they are trying to do?" Thats the first question I always ask myself.
