Rewind This! is a must see documentary about the home video boom of the 1980’s and the dedicated tape collectors obsessing, preserving and cataloging the format today. Josh Freda’s incredible synth score perfectly captures all aspects of 80’s videotape culture in an album full of music recalling cheesy action synth riffs, moody horror stings and neon drenched nighttime radios. This isn’t some hollow retro futuristic re-tread of the 80’s, however: Freda manages to inject so much personality and playfulness into his music that, even through the absolute barrage of synths in play, its sound remains ultra contemporary and very human indeed. Also includes the lo-fi punk gem 'Head Cleaner' by Joey Division as a bonus track.
One off pressing on 180g clear vinyl with black smoke and white colour in colour effect housed inside a 425gsm sleeve & including a download card of the full LP. Also available on Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify and all good streaming platforms. Listen here.
