Veronica Vasicka (Minimal Wave), Raspberry Jones, Treeboy
Another Treehouse beckons! Come join us!
On Thursday the 13th, our special guest is gonna take it back to the analog days when synthetic rhythms were cold and the machines were primitive. Veronica Vasicka is the proprietress of the great Minimal Wave label, which since 2005 has been repressing forgotten jams that sound like the deathbed/art-school siblings of electro, synth-pop and industrial. She’s been playing this music on East Village Radio since the station’s birth. If you want to a taste of Veronica’s music selection and what she means when she says “minimal wave,” check out the podcast mix she recorded for Stones Throw Records, who also licensed her excellent compilation “The Minimal Wave Tapes”.

Treeboy and Raspberry Jones will also be on hand on with a few dystopian sonic daydreams of their own.
Littlefield’s got a nice front yard which should make the balmy evening fly.
The whole thing should be fun yo!
Thanks to Veronica and Kate Interstatial.
See you on the dance-floor
