The Aquarius Tapes

Artwork: Mickey Dreamkey

Here's to the memory of ages past. A selection of tunes from the FH stash, collected throughout the years from great blogs like Mutant Sounds, Egg City Radio, Zero G Sound, The Library Hunt and numerous others. I tried to avoid sharing tracks re-issued recently, so if you like this early electronica style, you should check out the re-releases by Lo Recordings, Permanent Vacation, Trunk Records, Electunes, Cosmic Dancer, Finders Keepers and Glo Spot. Each tape comes with a different "Aquarius" cover version, the highlight being the frantic Daniel Johnston WFMU telephone performance. Enjoy.
